EL CAJON, Calif. - Power is expected to be restored by 5:30 p.m. Sunday to 1,217 customers in portions of Granite Hills, Bostonia, East El Cajon and Singing Hills after residents lost power when a vehicle struck a power pole.
The crash occurred at about 12:18 p.m. when a solo vehicle traveling northbound on Jamacha Road near Kendrick Way ran off the road and struck a power pole.
"A solo driver was coughing and drifted off the road and hit a power pole, shearing it at the base and cutting off power to the neighborhood," El Cajon Police Lt. Steve Shakowski said.
Shakowski said the vehicle's occupant was not injured. The vehicle was extensively damaged.
Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, Shakowski said.
