Elkwood Section Road reopens after single-vehicle wreck in Hazel Green

HAZEL GREEN, Ala. – Elkwood Section Road has reopened just west of Highway 231/431 in Hazel Green after a single-vehicle wreck.

It comes after utility crews made repairs to a damaged pole.

Emergency crews were called to the 300 block of Elkwood Section Road around 3:30 this morning.

According to officers, the driver was driving west when he lost control, went off the road and struck a utility pole.

The pole was damaged with power lines hanging low, so deputies had to block off the road while repairs were being made.

The driver was not injured in the wreck.
