A car knocked down a large power pole on Lake City Way early Sunday morning. The pole on the west side of the street near NE 95th Street fell north and was laying mostly on the sidewalk. Power lines were down in the westernmost lake of LCW.

The accident, reported on 911 logs at about 5 a.m., caused the closure of some southbound lanes, causing a traffic backup as a crew worked to lift the damaged pole.

There were no significant power outages reported after the accident. You can check a status map for Seattle City Light at this link.
