FREDERICK, Md. - South Market St. between Clarke Pl. and Stadium Dr. is closed following an early morning collision, and police said the area will remain closed until around Noon Friday.

Officials said a vehicle that was travelling northbound struck a pole supporting overhead wires, severing the pole.

The Frederick Police Department has closed that portion of roadway due to low hanging wires and the unstable pole, pending utility company response. At least one pole along the street is being replaced.

The investigation into the collision is ongoing. Police said one person was transported to the hospital as a result of this accident.
