ROSEVILLE (WWJ) – Police said it was a “minor crash” in Roseville Tuesday morning, but enough to topple a utility pole and send power lines across Gratiot Ave.

At 11 a.m., Gratiot remained closed in both directions south of Masonic, along with the ramp from eastbound I-94 to northbound Gratiot (Exit 231).

Police said a car changing lanes bumped into a second car, which the left the road and clipped the pole, not far from Macomb Mall.

No injuries were reported, with only minor damage to the car. Police thanked DTE Energy crews for their quick response to the scene to fix the pole.

WWJ’s Lorna Stevens is suggesting Groesbeck or Little Mack as alternates.
