TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A one-vehicle wreck caused a car to overturn and hit a power pole on Wednesday night in Tyler.

Tyler police are at the scene, at 1739 S. Beckham, in front of Whataburger. The vehicle struck a power pole and is overturned in the roadway. Oncor is being called to come to the area, as police say the power line is hanging low to the ground. Power at Whataburger and other area buildings is out until it is repaired.

The driver is out of the car and is being treated for minor injuries. She told our reporter at the scene that she is concerned for her dogs who were in the car and ran off. 

It is not known what caused the wreck.
