TAMPA (FOX 13) -

A portion of Nebraska Avenue was closed for a few hours Monday morning when a Toyota Camry slammed into a telephone pole.

Police said a woman fell asleep at the wheel and crashed at Nebraska and East Bryan Street around 1 a.m.

The woman was not injured, but police say the pole was broken off at the base, suspending by the overhead hanging wires.

TECO came out to replace the pole. The lanes were later reopened.
