GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A section of Broad Street in Goochland County is closed due to a single-vehicle accident.
Authorities tell us Broad Street is closed between Manakin Rd. and Three Chopt Rd. after a vehicle struck a power pole.
The driver was briefly trapped inside the vehicle after the pole split in half and fell onto the car. An official with Dominion Power said one of the Goochland County volunteer fireman who responded is also a lineman with Dominion. He recognized that the power line was still live and called to have the wire de-energized before attempting to rescue the occupant. The person was later removed from the vehicle without injury.
