They say as the crash happened, a transport truck impacted a hydro pole and knocked down power lines.

A section of Highbury Ave. was blocked for nearly two hours as crews worked to clear the scene of debris and live wires.

One lane of northbound traffic is expected to remain closed for several hours as hydro workers replace a pole and power lines.
