Highway 11, just south of Kinston, is back open after being shutdown in both directions.
Authorities say a vehicle struck a light pole, forcing the four-lane highway to be closed between U.S. 70 and Old Asphalt Road. A fiber optic cable was across the highway, according to the D.O.T.
The road was closed for several hours Friday.
No one was injured in the accident.
