A mile-long stretch of Jawbone Hill in Oughtibridge is to remain closed in both directions between the Platts Lane junction and the Stubbing House Lane junction in Grenoside.
A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said two cars lost control due to the bad weather and one of the vehicles hit a electricity pole at around 9.35am. Nobody was injured.
National Grid staff are also in attendance.
The road is to remain cordoned off by police due to the poor weather conditions.
