Nearly 600 Southern California Edison in El Segundo were still without power tonight after a suspected drunk driver slammed a car into a light pole in the early morning hours, according to El Segundo police and a utility spokesman.
The crash, which occurred near the intersection of El Segundo Boulevard and Sheldon Street, initially caused 4,337 customers across of a wide swath of El Segundo to lose power.
SCE crews restored service to most of them by 8:45 a.m. but, as of 9:45 p.m., 598 customers were still left in the dark, SCE spokesman Amado Zavala said.
He predicted that they will have electricity restored by 7 a.m. Thursday.
The accident was reported at 2:36 a.m., said SCE spokesman Paul Netter. The area affected by the outage was bounded by Imperial Highway on the north, Illinois Street on the east, El Segundo Boulevard on the south and Hillcrest Street on the west, according to Netter.
