Car Accident Causes Temporary Power Outage in La Habra

 A car accident that occurred last Monday morning in La Habra, Orange County, California caused a temporary power outage within the area.

According to news reports, the single car accident happened at around 2 o’clock in the morning, Monday when the car struck down a power pole in the area of Lambert Road and Cypress Street.

The collision had caused power outage within the area according to La Habra police authorities who responded to the area right after they received a report of a vehicle that crashed into a pole.

No injuries have been reported from the said crash. Even the 21-year old driver, Andrew Delos Reyes of Whittier California, did not sustain any personal injury. However, the driver of the said car was arrested on the same day on suspicion of Driving under the Influence (DUI), which authorities suspected as the major factor to the incident. 

The power has been restored an hour after the incident. According to Edison spokeswoman Mashi Nyssen, about 3,000 Southern California Edison customers were affected by the power outage. However, some residents claim that their power was not restored. Consequently, Edison is trying to detect and fix the problem, while Nyssen assures the residents that they could expect full power restoration until Wednesday night.

Also, parts of Lambert Road between Euclid St. and Harbor Boulevard are expected to be reopened on Wednesday afternoon once reconstruction has been done.

Anyone who has suffered losses or damages from a car accident may always seek for legal remedies through the help of a Los Angeles injury lawyer. Delos Reyes is still lucky enough that no one was injured from the said car accident. However, he would probably be penalized by either the city or the electric company for the damages that the said accident brought.
