    A driver crashed into a light pole on a busy street in Santee Thursday, causing the pole to topple over onto both the car and the street.

    The accident happened around 3:15 p.m. in the 8300 block of Carlton Oaks Drive. Injuries were not immediately reported, but the pole did wind up resting on top of the vehicle.

    San Diego Gas & Electric crews were called out to the scene to remove the busted light pole. Deputies said the vehicle would be towed once the pole was cleared.

    Deputies provided traffic control in the area as crews worked to clear the site of the crash.

    The SDG&E website showed an unplanned power outage impacting approximately 200 customers in the Santee and Carlton Hills area right around the time of the collision. Power was expected to be restored by 4 p.m.
