A driver hit a light pole that had been knocked down by Tropical Storm Cindy and layed across U.S. 90 on Wednesday morning.

Sherry Nelson was driving westbound with her children, Trinity Crawford, 5, Trent Crawford, 3, and Teagan Crawford, 1, when she said she hit the pole that was just east of DeBuys Road.

Biloxi Police and Fire departments responded, along with American Medical Response.

Highway 90 was closed in the westbound lanes about 15 minutes until a tow truck could remove the vehicle and the debris was cleared from the roadway.
