No one was injured in the one-car accident.
A single-vehicle crash in Georgetown this morning left thousands without power.
Around 8:30 a.m., 24-year-old Ian Messick, of Seaford, was driving a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer on Route 9, just west of Georgetown, in front of Sussex Technical High School. For unknown reasons, Messick's vehicle exited the road and crashed into a Delaware Electric Cooperative transmission pole.
The car burst into flames, but Messick was able to get out uninjured. Route 9, in the area of Sussex Tech, was closed in both directions for about an hour.
Three Delaware Electric Co-op substations were affected by the crash, causing thousands of customers to be without power for over an hour.
Messick was cited for failure to remain in a single lane.
