HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Three fallen light poles blocked eastbound traffic on University Drive Monday morning.

One car took out three light poles at 7 a.m. on University Drive, just east of Old Monrovia Road. The poles blocked all eastbound traffic on University Drive, which was diverted to the center lane. Utilities worked for about an hour to remove the light poles from the highway.

Both lanes of traffic are back open.

Officials have not yet released what may have caused the accident.
