NORFOLK -- Police say a driver lost control and struck a pole early Thursday in Norfolk.

The crash happened around 1 a.m. in the 800 block of Norview Avenue.

Because the pole was damaged, police have blocked off Norview between Tidewater Drive and Sedgefield Drive.

The street reopened around 11 a.m.

The crash is under investigation.

That was the second accident of the morning involving a car hitting a pole in Norfolk. Another happened on Granby Street at Wards Corner. No word on what caused that driver to lose control.
