Central Ave back open after accident, down power lines Tuesday

SYLVANIA TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) - An accident and downed power lines temporarily closed a section of Central Avenue in Sylvania Township Tuesday.

According to a Sylvania Township police dispatcher, a single car hit a utility pole at Moffat and Central, causing power lines to drop.

The Ohio Department of Transportation closed Central Ave between Moffat Road and Holland-Sylvania Road as well as the ramp from I-475/US-23 to Central.

Some businesses along Central Avenue lost power for about 45 minutes because of the crash.

"We don't have a back up generator, but its something we can look into, but it only lasted for 45 minutes so everyone took a lunch break and everything was back to usual," said Ken Foster, general manager at Brown Honda.

Power has since been restored to the area and traffic is again moving.

No one was injured in the crash.
