Fullerton residents briefly lost power after a power pole was sheared in a vehicle crash, authorities said Thursday.
Fullerton police Lt. Andrew Goodrich said the vehicle, a newer model Honda, struck the pole at the intersection of West Pioneer Avenue and Gilbert Street around 11:40 p.m. Wednesday.
Southern California Edison shut down power to the area after the accident but did not specify how many customers were affected.
Goodrich said it appeared the pole would not be removed and replaced until later today.
Two of the vehicle’s occupants took off after the crash, but the driver and one passenger remained at the scene. They appeared unhurt.
