MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — A multiple-vehicle crash Thursday night caused the southbound lanes of Hwy 231 in Meridianville to be shut down for nearly 12 hours.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) confirmed both southbound lanes of Hwy 231 near Inspirational Drive were shut down due to the crash involving a utility pole.

As of Friday morning, the lefthand, southbound lane has reopened, according to authorities on the scene.

Officials told News 19 crews that one of the vehicles had hit a power pole, and was blocking the highway. A majority of the cleanup involved utility crews working to remove that pole and replace it.

Traffic had been detoured onto Monroe Road to Mount Lebanon Road, and then to Bob Wade Lane.

There is no word if anyone was injured in the wreck.
