Several traffic signals along a stretch of Albemarle Road in Charlotte are working again, after a single-car wreck on Reddman Road knocked out power to the signals at about 3 a.m., Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Capt. Thomas Gwaltney said at 5 a.m. Friday.
The car left the road and struck a utility pole, causing power to go out in the area, Gwaltney said. Duke Energy’s online outage map showed only a couple of homes without power at 5:30 a.m.
The car’s occupants left the area before first responders arrived, he said.
Gwaltney said Duke Energy is repairing the downed pole.
