The crash knocked down one of the traffic light poles, causing it to lose power. 


While the scene initially looked serious, there appeared to be minimal damage to a single car involved. 

The car was cleared from the intersection and on a tow truck by 9:15 p.m. On scene personnel were mainly focused on getting the stoplight back up and running.

Power to the rest of the intersection stoplights was out, so an officer was directing traffic. Westbound Mulberry was temporarily blocked at the intersection. 

This is a developing story. The Collegian will update the story with more details as they become available.
