The road has yet to be closed off by emergency responders (who have not yet arrived). Cars traveling southbound are traveling underneath the downed sign where it is possible, which will likely be stopped once emergency responders arrive.

Guests should avoid World Drive until the situation is cleared up.

That SUV hit that pole hard. It was really mangled on the front passenger side. Prayers for all involved.
