Possible drunk driver takes down pole knocking out power

A man, possibly drunk, lost control of his pickup truck after 3am at 17th South and near Des Moines Memorial Drive and took out a power pole, knocking out power. The loss of power affected more than 3000 customers initially and then was restored, yet 485 remain without power in the area.

To the south the power outage extends to 120th Street and crossing Glendale Way South to the north goes to South Roxbury Street and across Des Moines Memorial Drive.

City LIght expects to have power restored by 6pm.
