Power in parts of Sacramento will be shut off for a short time early Monday morning while SMUD crews attempt to repair a power pole.

Police say a drunk driver on 65th Street Expressway hit a pole in between 8th and 9th Avenues. About ten feet of the bottom of the pole snapped off, but the top portion remains suspended in mid-air.

The driver has been taken into custody and suffered minor injuries.

No power outages were reported as a result of the broken pole breaking.
