Car Crash Knocks Out Power to Carmichael Neighborhood
A car crashed into a power pole in Carmichael, disconnecting power to an entire neighborhood.
Around 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning, a dark grey sedan smashed head-on into a power pole near the intersection of Walnut Ave. and Bellwood Way. Both the pole and wires were knocked down.
No one was transported to the hospital and SMUD is currently working to restore power to the roughly 25 homes affected. Power is expected to be restored later Saturday afternoon after a new pole is installed.
