A telephone pole blocked a busy roadway Friday morning after a car reportedly crashed and the driver fled the scene.

The incident happened at McGavock Pike and Pennington Bend Road near Briley Parkway in the Donelson area.

The driver reportedly crashed into a telephone pole, causing it to fall over and lay across the roadway.

Police told Nashville's News 2 the driver was nowhere to be found when officers arrived on the scene.

A Nashville Electric Service crew disconnected what was still connected to the pole.

Police blocked off both sides of the incident and traffic was diverted.

The investigation is ongoing.
