A car crashed into a power pole Tuesday in Bonney Lake, bringing live wires down on the vehicle and trapping at least two people inside.

The crash occurred just before 10 a.m. in the 1000 block of Angeline Road. The road did not reopen until after 5 p.m., according to Bonney Lake police.

Police asked the people in the car to remain inside until a Puget Sound Energy crew arrived to safely remove the live wires.

The people suffered minor injuries.

That area near the road was closed, and drivers were advised to use an alternate route.

It’s unclear what caused the crash, but police had warned that roads were icy, slick and difficult to maneuver.
