Gaines Street was down to one lane between 16th and 17th streets in Davenport while MidAmerican Energy replaced a utility pole that was struck down in a single-vehicle crash. The pole was struck by a pickup truck about 2:20 p.m. Saturday. The driver, the only passenger in the vehicle, was not injured, officers on the scene said.

No power outage was reported. The road was expected to be fully reopened in a couple of hours, police said.
