Power Restored in Koreatown After 2-Car Collision Damaged Power Pole
Crews were able to restore power in Koreatown Monday evening following a two-car collision that sent one of the vehicles into a utility pole, officials said.
The crash occurred around 3:50 p.m. near the corner of First Street and Bimini Place, Los Angeles Police Officer Tony Im said.
One person was transported for medical treatment, but their condition was unknown, Im added. It’s unclear how many people were involved.
The collision left the utility pole damage and knocked down a conductor, the L.A. Department of Water and Power said in a tweet.
Power was restored by 8 p.m. The agency did not say how many customers had been impacted.
Footage from the scene showed the top portion of the pole had been sheared off. An SUV with damage to its front end could be seen nearby, but it was unclear whether that was the vehicle that struck the pole.
No further details were immediately available.
