San Pedro homes, business lose power after SUV slams into pole

SAN PEDRO, Calif.

The incident happened shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday in the 1100 block of South Pacific Avenue.

Investigators say the driver of a Cadillac Escalade hit a pole, knocked down wires and caused the outage. That driver took off before police arrived.

It was raining in the area at the time, so police think that may have been a contributing factor.

Department of Water and Power officials say all power has since been restored.
