Wednesday, May 1, 2019 - 8:32pm

The portion of West Sycamore Avenue from South Main Street/US 1A to South Wingate Street is closed due to a single vehicle accident.

At approximately 7:30 pm, a vehicle veered off the road before striking and breaking a utility pole (see attached photos) resulting in power outages for Wake Forest Power customers in the immediate area.

The driver was transported to Wake Med North with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Wake Forest Power crews are on the way to the scene to repair the utility pole, but the work is not expected to be completed for several hours.

Wake Forest Police are directing traffic around the area. Motorists are advised to avoid the area and choose an alternate route.

Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.
