(Southwest El Centro loses power)…It was just long enough to make a few people late for work.
The outage was caused by a vehicle colliding with a power pole. El Centro Police Commander Jeff Mason said at 6:40 Monday morning a vehicle ran into a sign and then into the Imperial Irrigation District pole. The collision caused outages in portions of southwest El Centro. The IID had all power restored by 8:00 am. Mason says no one was injured in the collision.
