Police closed part of West Liberty Avenue in Brookline Sunday evening because a car crashed into a utility pole.

Allegheny County 911 supervisors said the crash occurred just after 7 p.m. near Belle Isle Avenue, snapping the utility pole in half and bringing power lines down into the roadway. West Liberty was closed in both directions between Wenzell and Pauline avenues as of 9 p.m. Police could not determine if the snowy weather contributed to the crash.

Duquesne Light crews were called to the scene to repair the lines.
