A woman was hospitalized after she apparently fell asleep at the wheel and crashed her blue sedan into a telephone pole on Flanders Road Sunday afternoon, according to Southampton Town police at the scene. 

The woman was believed to have suffered just minor injuries in the crash, which occurred in front of the David W. Crohan Community Center, police said.

“She’s very lucky, we’ll say that,” officer Steve Frankenbach said. 

The downed pole led to a partial road closure from Evergreen Road to Glider Avenue at 3:30 p.m. As of 4:45 p.m. the road remained closed.

No power outages were reported by PSEG.
