On Thursday, Sept. 12 around 9:30 pm, a vehicle struck a pole, closing Myrtle Avenue from Asbury Avenue to Port Au Peck Avenue.

Police quickly arrived on scene to help the driver and close the road. The impact of the collision was so strong that it blew the transformer.

An officer from the Oceanport Police Department confirmed there were no serious injuries.

As for when the road will be reopened, “That could take some time and we do not have an answer right now,” said an officer.

Look out for detours and plan your drive accordingly.
