CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

An east Charlotte road was shut down after a driver crashed into a power pole Monday morning. 

The incident occurred in the 6700 block of Albemarle Road at Regal Oaks Drive near Harris Boulevard around 2:30 a.m. 

The wreck brought down traffic lights and power lines onto the roadway. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police tweeted that Albemarle Road was closed in both directions while crews repair the power lines. 

CMPD said the closure is expected to last until Monday afternoon. It is unclear what time the road is expected to reopen.

Officials did not say whether the driver was injured.
