Thousands Affected by Lake Elsinore Power Outage

A vehicle plowed into a utility pole today in Lake Elsinore, sparking a blackout that affected more than 3,700 businesses and homes.

The crash was reported at 2 p.m. west of Dryden Street. A total of 3,710 Southern California Edison customers went without power for about an hour as the affected power lines were shut down long enough for work crews to safely repair them, SCE spokeswoman Susan Cox said.

By 3 p.m., there were 523 businesses and homes without power. Cox could not give an estimate as to when power would be restored.

There was no immediate word on the cause of the crash or the condition of the driver.
