Serious crash shuts down Boynton Beach Blvd. near Turnpike

BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A fatal crash on Boynton Beach Boulevard, near the Florida Turnpike, has shut down both the east and westbound lanes. 

The crash involved an SUV and a power pole. The power pole was visibly cut in half.

As of 1:30 p.m., the roads will continue to be closed for the next four to five hours due to the extensive work by Florida Power & Light to replace a pole and wires, according to the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office.

Both north and southbound exits to the Turnpike are being shut down as investigators respond to the scene. 

Florida Power & Light has responded to the scene.
