New Castle County police are investigating an early morning wreck on Friday on Milltown Road just east of Pecksniff Road.

An SUV crashed into and severed a utility pole, coming to rest on top of the pole stump on November 8, 2019.

The impact knocked out power to dozens of homes in the area.

The road was closed for 11 hours while the crash was investigated and cleared, and utility crews replaced and rewired the pole.

County police said the driver of the SUV was not hurt.
