A one-car crash at Bogart and Ransom roads Friday night shut down traffic in that area until utility crews can clear the scene.
Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers said alcohol was likely a factor when a vehicle went off Bogart Road and struck a utility pole. The driver didn't suffer life-threatening injuries, but was still taken by ambulance to Firelands Regional Medical Center for treatment.
Ohio Edison crews were called to the scene because the collision knocked out power in the area.
County road crews are diverting traffic away from Bogart and Ransom roads. A detour route hasn't been determined yet, but motorists are asked to avoid that area for the time being.
