WINTER HAVEN, Fla. – A woman was killed in an overnight crash in Winter Haven.
The single-vehicle collision occurred around midnight Tuesday near Havendale Boulevard and 14th Street NW. Police said the female driver was heading east on Havendale Blvd. when “for unknown reasons” the vehicle struck a curb near 15th Street NW.
Officials said the impact caused the vehicle to flip and hit a TECO power pole.
Investigators said the woman, who was the only occupant, did not survive the crash.
Police have closed all but one eastbound lane of Havendale Blvd. between 14th St. NW and U.S. Highway 17.
“Drivers will see delays through the morning as crews repair a TECO power pole,” said Police. Officials suggest using U.S. Highway 92 as an alternate route.
They said they expect the roadway to remain closed during the morning commute. There is no word yet on when all lanes will reopen.
