MONETTE, AR (KAIT) – Crews are at the scene of a one vehicle accident in Monette where utilities have been knocked down.

According to Jonesboro E-911 Director Jeff Presley, Monette police, fire and rescue and power crews were called to the scene of a vehicle accident on Highway 139 just north of Highway 18 Friday morning around 6.

Monette police say a 17-year-old was driving too fast around a curve and hit one utility pole causing it and another to break.  A third pole was bent over, but did not break.

Police say the teen refused treatment at the scene and has been released to his parents.

Utility crews from Entergy Arkansas, Craighead Electric Cooperative and Ritter Communications are working to restore the poles.  Police are directing traffic. 

Please use extreme caution if you are traveling in that area because power lines are still down.
