Tucson police say West Ajo Way has reopened after a light pole was damaged in a car accident on Monday afternoon.

According to a tweet from Tucson Police Department Sgt. Chris Widmer, the street was allowed to reopen "much earlier than expected" thanks to repairs done by Tucson Electric Power crews.

The street was closed between South 12th and South 16th avenues at about 2:30 p.m. after the accident. The closure was expected to last into the evening.

Nobody was hurt in the accident. A damaged street light, however, had to be removed.

Tucson News Now's Craig Reck is at the scene. He can be followed on Twitter at @CraigReckNews.
