Arlington crash

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - An overnight crash in Arlington caused a power outage in the area Monday.

All lanes of University Boulevard between Lake Lucina and Merrill Road were blocked by the crash where a power pole was almost split in half. More than 1,300 customers were without power after the wreck, according to JEA. They said the crash also impacted water and sewage in the area.

JSO said no one was injured in the single-car crash. The damaged pole was replaced shortly after 7 a.m. This allowed several lanes of University Boulevard to reopen. Drivers can also use Cesery Blvd. as alternate route.
