TAYLORSVILLE, Utah — 4000 West in Taylorsville closed down Sunday, after a jeep hit a power pole, causing the pole to become unstable.

Sgt. Melody Gray with the Unified Police Department said the accident occurred at 3:38 p.m. near 6200 South and 3920 West.

Gray stated that a jeep was hit by another car, causing it to crash into the power pole. A 44-year-old man was inside the vehicle, and had to be extricated, Gray said.

Gray said the power pole was unstable after the accident, so Rocky Mountain Power was en-route to fix the pole.
