A serious crash critically hurt two people and could keep a busy Winnipeg thoroughfare closed through the morning rush hour.

According to police, a car slammed into a hydro pole on St. Mary’s Road at Vivian Avenue around 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Northbound St. Mary’s is closed in the area and traffic is being diverted.

Drivers heading through that part of the city are advised to give themselves extra time, or find a different way to get downtown.
