TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL – Several vehicles were involved in a crash on I-59 today after a light pole fell over and blocked the highway, CBS 42 reports.

The pole was knocked down into the roadway near exit 71B after it was struck by a lawnmower. Several drivers traveling in the southbound lanes tried to avoid hitting the pole, resulting in collisions with other vehicles.

One commercial 18-wheeler truck swerved from the roadway and ran into a side rail, while three separate vehicles and one pickup truck collided with one another.

The wreck caused closures in all lanes of the highway except one.

Motorists were advised to seek other routes.

One person was hurt after the crash, according to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. The extent of their injuries is currently unknown. We will continue to monitor the story for more updates.
