wreckMADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – An early morning wreck left several hundred people in north Madison County without power.

Just after 1:30 a.m. Monday, crews were called to Blake Bottom Road at Cloud Creek Drive after a single-vehicle crash.

According to Alabama State Troopers, the driver was on Blake Bottom Road when he lost control, slamming head-on into a utility pole.

However, several hundred homes in the Hidden Creek subdivision remain without power.

Blake Bottom Road is closed east of Jeff Road as crews work to replace the power pole.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured. But he was arrested for failing a field sobriety test. Troopers say alcohol was involved.
