ARDEN-ARCADE -- According to witnesses in the area, a car traveling northbound on Fulton Avenue and Hurley Way in the Arden-Arcade area hit a power pole and then drove off around 1 a.m. Thursday.

A man told FOX40 he was in the shopping center parking lot when he heard a loud crash. He ran out and saw the car pulled over. The man says the driver got out uninjured, looked around and left the scene.

At one point three lanes were blocked by the downed pole and around 5:30 a.m., only one lane was still closed.
