BELFAST, Maine (WABI) - A crash near the Circle K convenience store in Belfast closed Route 1 for much of Wednesday afternoon.

Police tell us one car was passing another when the first car went off the road and hit a pole.

The impact knocked down power lines that blocked the road.

The pole then needed to be fixed.

Authorities say the people in the cars had only minor injuries.
