Power restored to 2800 customers after crash

ROYAL PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A single-vehicle accident in Royal Palm Beach forced authorities to shutdown southbound Royal Palm Beach Boulevard for nearly two hours Thursday morning, after a car lost control and slammed into a tree.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews were dispatched near the intersection of Royal Palm Beach Boulevard and Parkwood Drive around 5:39 a.m., following reports of an accident.

When rescue crews arrived, they found that the car had struck a utility pole and ultimately crashed into a tree planted in the center median.

How many people were in the car and the extent of their injuries remains unknown at this time. Trauma Hawk, however, transported at least one person to St. Mary's Medical Center.

The car was towed away around 7:30 a.m., allowing traffic to flow once again in both directions of Royal Palm Beach Boulevard.

Meanwhile, the accident left at least 2,800 Florida Power and Light customers without power for nearly two hours Thursday morning. The company's Web site states that power has since been restored to the communities surrounding the accident.
