CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A major Cape Coral road is shut down for hours Saturday afternoon after a tractor-trailer hit a power pole.
The accident happened on Del Prado and shut down the 1600 and 1700 blocks for most of the afternoon.
Law enforcement says the big rig hit a pole near the Coral Point Mall around noon causing the pole to break near its base.
Traffic was diverted on to SE 16th Place, through the Walmart parking lot, as LCEC repaired the pole and cleared power lines.
The road reopened around 4 Saturday afternoon.
