A sheared hydrant caused a 55-foot geyser in the Southcrest area Friday, followed by a related power outage.

According to SDG&E, a vehicle struck a power pole and fire hydrant around 12:40 p.m. at 38th Street and Acacia Street. Officials said live wires were down.

The incident was followed by a power outage that left more than 1,000 SDG&E customers without power in portions of Logan Heights, Mountain View and Lincoln Park.

SDG&E says full restoration of power in the area is expected by 3:10 p.m. The cause of the outage, again, is linked back to the vehicle impacting the electric system.
