POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. --  Drivers are being asked to avoid the Salt Point Turnpike in Poughkeepsie between Underhill Road and Gables Boulevard following a traffic crash that left a utility pole blocking the roadway, Town of Poughkeepsie said.

The accident, which occurred around 11 a.m., happened when a box truck lost control and struck the pole, police said.

Officers said the road will be closed until at least 2 p.m. as power company employees work to replace the pole, police said.

Drivers traveling south on the turnpike should use Bedell Road as an exit.
