CORNWALL – A section of Marleau Avenue had to be closed overnight after an SUV struck a hydro pole.

The single vehicle crash happened between Guy Street and McConnell Avenue around 11:30 p.m. Sunday.

A witness told Cornwall Newswatch the force of the crash split the pole in two.

Cornwall firefighters and police were on scene.

A 32-year-old city woman is charged with impaired driving, having more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 milliliters of blood (over 80), dangerous driving and breach of probation for failing to keep the peace.

She will appear in a Cornwall court in October.

The section of Marleau was closed overnight with detours in place but has since reopened.
