AMHERST, NY-The Friday morning rush hour was more challenging than usual for drivers along a busy stretch of North French Rd. near the I-990 in Amherst.

Police say a car lost control, left the road and hit a pole before coming to rest against a gas meter outside of a house.

No serious injuries were reported. National Grid and National Fuel were called in to deal with the utility issues.

That part of North French was closed to traffic while crews worked to clear the crash.
