Solo-car crash prompts closure of Cypress Street in Covina

COVINA — A solo-car crash into a utility pole Thursday caused no major injuries, but prompted a closure of Cypress Street that could last as long as 24 hours, authorities said.
The crash took place about 11:21 a.m. on Cypress Street at Cummings Road, Covina police Lt. Ric Walczak said.
No crime was initially suspected in the crash, and the driver was taken for treatment of apparently minor injuries, the lieutenant said.
But the crash badly damaged a Southern California Edison power pole, he said.
Utility workers determined the pole must be replaced, and Cypress Street will remain closed to traffic at the crash scene until the work is complete, Walczak said. The repairs could take up to 24 hours.
