A Sunday morning accident at the intersection of 441 North and East Main Street knocks out a traffic light.

Details are limited at this time, but the wreck involving multiple cars, reportedly took out the pole holding the traffic signals causing the lights to fall onto the roadway around 11:15 a.m.

The road had to be closed temporarily in order for the NCDOT to conduct repairs to the light. Lake Emory Road was used as a detour route.

Reports are currently being filed by the Franklin Police Department.

No information on the individuals involved in the accident is available at this time.
