LAKESIDE, Calif. — Electrical power was restored Sunday morning to all but 76 of the nearly 3,000 SDG&E customers in Lakeside, Winter Gardens and Bostonia blacked out when a vehicle struck a power pole overnight.

lakeside-crashSDG&E spokeswoman Julie Wright said a crash at Westhill Road and Marilla Drive caused the power outage at 2:55 a.m.

“Initially 2,865 customers were affected, but by 3:08 a.m. power had been restored to all but 273 of those customers,” Wright said. “Throughout the night crews worked to restore power to all remaining customers.”

As of 9:30 a.m., 76 affected customers remained without power, Wright said.

Wright said power would be restored to those remaining customers no later than 3 p.m. Sunday.
