SW Pine Island Road Shut Down in the Area of Nott Rd. Due to Traffic Crash


(October 18, 2012)-  A vehicle traveling west on SW Pine Island Rd. struck a towed boat and trailer traveling in front of it and then went off the road and hit a utility pole.  The driver suffered minor injuries.  The damage to the pole caused it to be replaced, resulting in road closure for several hours.  LCEC crane just showed up, expect it to be at least 4 hours.  Traffic being rerouted down Nott Rd. and SW 19th Ave.  We are asking drivers to avoid the area for the next 4 hours.  We will send out an update once we get word that the road has been re-opened.
