Hit and Run Causes Poway Power Outage



    Hundreds of residents were left without power Wednesday night after a hit and run driver crashed into a power pole in Poway, officials said.

    Deputies say an unknown driver struck a pole on Espola Road and Valle Verde Road at around 6:45 p.m., causing the outage. The driver then fled the scene.

    According to San Diego Gas & Electric, roughly 910 customers were still without power as of 9 p.m. in Poway, Rancho Penasquitos and parts of Rancho Bernardo and San Pasqual.

    SDG&E crews expect to have power fully restored to customers by about 1:10 a.m.
