A crash knocked a traffic light pole into the Dale Mabry Highway entrance to Britton Plaza shopping center in South Tampa on Thursday afternoon.

The collision, at Bay Vista Avenue, appeared to be medically related, police said. A white van struck the pole, pushing it into the shopping center entrance.

There were no injuries, police said.

Power at the light will not be restored until at least midnight, police said.

Until then, Bay Vista is closed in both directions. On Dale Mabry, the northbound center lane is open. The southbound lanes are open except for the left turn into Britton Plaza.

Barricades will redirect traffic until Tampa Electric makes repairs, police said.
