LIBERTY

A portion of Youngstown-Hubbard Road in the township has reopened after a one-vehicle crash that knocked out power for area residents for several hours.

According to dispatchers, a black car struck a utility pole near Logangate Road just before noon Monday, said a report from 21 WFMJ-TV, The Vindicator’s broadcast partner.

Calls to first responders say the car sheared off the pole, knocking down wires, before driving off the road and into a ditch.

There’s no word whether anyone was injured in the crash.

Troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol are investigating. They have not released information about what may have caused the crash. FirstEnergy crews worked to repair the lines. About 100 customers were affected.
