Medford, Ore., — Riverside Avenue was closed today after a car struck a telephone pole.

Officers say the car’s tire blew out near the 12-hundred block of Riverside Avenue and Walnut, causing it to lose control and hit the pole.

Police closed the road and detoured cars near Manzanita Drive for several hours until the pole was repaired.

No injuries were reported, and phone service was not interrupted.
