Exactly what led up to the crash is unclear, but it appears at least two vehicles were involved. One of the vehicles struck a pole, while the other vehicle involved was a classic Volkswagen Beetle.
Both drivers were taken to the hospital, one with major and the other with minor injuries. Police did not specify which one was suspected of DUI.
Lanes are expected to be closed for a few more hours along Madison Avenue.
