Around a thousand people were without power on Monday morning after a vehicle crashed into a power pole in the West Valley.

The collision happened about 2:30 a.m. on Monday in the area of 83rd Avenue and Broadway Road.

One of the vehicles took out a few power poles resulting in a power outage in the area.  Approximately 1,100 Salt River Project customers lost power.

A woman was transported to the hospital with minor injuries and a man was seen running from the crash.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department is on-scene investigating.
