SAN DIEGO – More than 1,100 homes were without power Tuesday morning after a hit-and-run driver crashed into an electrical box in Oak Park, police said.

San Diego police arrived at 47th Street near Federal Boulevard around 1:30 a.m. An SUV reportedly slammed into the electrical box, causing it to explode and uprooting it from the ground.

Several police officers were standing near the electrical box when power was restored, causing flames to shoot out of the box and nearly injuring the officers.

Smoke was also seen pouring from the electrical box and thousands of people were without power, SDG&E said.

Power was restored to most customers later Tuesday morning. No good description of the hit-and-run driver was available.

      The numbers are never provided from local and state L/E’s. I have personally been involved in a hit and run from a person that is a non-resident (AKA, an illegal hit me then ran). If the local, state, and federal law enforcement officers do not inforce the laws on the books regarding illegals, then we have what is known as a lawless land… It cost a 100 times more to allow these criminals to walk freely among American citizens than pay an extra $2.00 for a basket of strawberries. Enough of the bleeding heart B.S.! Send them packing, along with the anchor babies too!
