PLAINFIELD TWP., Pa. -

Route 191 remains closed between  Kesslersville and Pen Argyl roads following an accident Monday night, officials said.

At least one person was hurt when a vehicle hit a utility pole on 191 in Plainfield Township, Northampton County.

There is no word on how seriously that person was hurt.

The pole fell and is blocking the road -- forcing crews to shut the road down. 

It's unclear how long the road will be closed.
