A woman was taken to the hospital after her van collided with a utility pole in Belvoir.

Highway Patrol says it happened just after 4 a.m. Monday morning on Old River Road. Troopers say the van went off the road and overturned before hitting the pole.
The driver was able to crawl out of the vehicle and was taken to Vidant Medical Center. Authorities say she’s expected to be okay.

The crash is still under investigation. A small portion of Old River Road was blocked off in both directions for a couple of hours as Edgecombe- Martin EMC made repairs to the damaged electrical line.
