Some 2,787 customers lost power following the crash of a vehicle into a power pole Sunday but electricity was quickly restored, according to a Southern California Edison spokesperson.
Eighteen customers were still without power two hours after the crash but crews were working to turn the lights on for those residents or businesses, Susan Cox told Patch.
Five people suffered injuries Sunday when a vehicle plowed into a utility pole in San Jacinto and all were taken to hospitals by ambulances.
