INDIANAPOLIS — An intersection on the east side of Indianapolis is closed Friday morning after the traffic signals were knocked over.

The traffic signal at East 21st Street and North Post Road was on the ground when Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers arrived, but they did not find a crash scene.

As of 6:30 a.m., police said the intersection will be closed about two hours.

The incident caused a power outage in the nearby area. Warren Central High School officials said on Facebook that students will have an eLearning day on Friday due to the outage.
