Road Closed After Crash Near Taft Homes

A telephone pole was hit by the car

PEORIA - UPDATE:

Peoria Police say a driver trying to flee a traffic stop prompted the crash near Taft Homes Wednesday night. Police say when the driver fled at a high speed, the officer did not try to pursue the suspect. The car then crashed at Adams and Green and the suspect ran away.
 

Traffic is diverted around Taft Homes Wednesday night after a car hits a telephone pole and ends up going through a fence.

A section of Northeast Adams between Hancock and Wayne was closed around 6:45 in the evening as police cleaned up after the single-vehicle crash.

Little information was provided to our crew on the scene, but officers were worried that the pole could come down and hit traffic below.

The road was still closed nearly an hour after the crash. Stay with WMBD and WYZZ for the latest.
