SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - An early morning crash involving a vehicle and a power pole closed a section of Webber Street Monday morning.

Florida Highway Patrol says around 5am, 21-year-old Blake Horn of Bradenton was driving eastbound on Webster Street, west of Robinson Avenue, when he fell asleep. Horn lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a utility pole and cable box.

That stretch of Webber was shut down for a few hours while Florida Power and Light crews repaired the pole and power lines. It has since re-opened.

Horn was transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital and received minor injuries.
