COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A major Colorado Springs intersection reopened at the start of the Tuesday morning commute after a car was split in half from hitting a pole overnight.

Colorado Springs police responded to Powers and Stetson Hills around 11 Monday night to a rollover crash involving two cars. One car hit a traffic control pole, which split the car in half, leaving the engine on the road.

The driver of that car, identified by police as Ryan Jacobi, was evaluated for DUI, as alcohol may have been a factor in this crash. There were no serious injuries, although police have not said how many people were involved.

Colorado Springs Utilities was called to the scene to fix the pole. The intersection was completely reopened by 6 a.m.
