More than 2,100 people were without power in the southwest valley Tuesday after a vehicle crashed into a utility pole, Las Vegas police said.
The crash happened just after 5 p.m. near the Jones Boulevard-Rochelle Avenue intersection, just south of Flamingo Road, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Steve Summers said.
“Impairment may be a factor,” he said.
The vehicle’s driver was taken to University Medical Center. Power was restored by about 7:30 p.m.
The crash was the second of the day that caused a significant power outage. Another crash early Tuesday temporarily left about 3,000 without power in the south valley.
