An accident has closed Bancroft Street between Rosedale and Joffre in central Toledo Friday evening. 

Around 9 p.m. Friday, police say one car was turning left into a driveway off Bancroft when it was hit by another car. The second car then hit a pole with a power transformer on it, knocking the transformer to the ground. The car bounced off a retaining wall and hit another pole. 

Toledo Edison's website shows 1,200 people are without power in the area.

There were no injuries, but Toledo Police say Bancroft will be closed for several hours while Toledo Edison replaces the poles and transformer.
