No one was injured in a crash that knocked down a power pole early Thursday evening.

The Montana Highway Patrol responded to 72nd Street West and Laurel Airport Road around 5:30 p.m.

A passenger car heading east on Laurel Airport Road was at the stop sign and went into the intersection, according to Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Brett Riesinger.

There are no stop signs for traffic on 72nd and a pickup truck heading north hit the car.

The truck went off the road and hit a power pole.

Neither of the male drivers was injured.

Traffic is blocked approaching the intersection.

Riesinger expects it to take until close to midnight for Northwestern Energy to fix the pole.
