ELLSWORTH, Ohio (WKBN) – A stretch of road is shut down today after a power pole fell across it.
Police and fire crews responded to Ellsworth Road near U.S. Route 224 about 9:30 a.m. after the pole and live wires fell across it.
Ohio Edison also responded and cut power to the line.
Officials believe the pole toppled due to age.
