LAKESIDE – Electrical power was restored this 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.
SDG&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. today.
