Power outages across the county

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Power has been restore to more than a thousand SDG&E customers in Ramona. Only 70 remain without service. Power was knocked out after a car slammed into a power pole overnight.

The problem began around 2:00 a.m. Tuesday in the 1200 block of Barnett when the driver lost control, striking the power pole. He suffered moderate injuries.

Meanwhile, power is still out for dozens of people after a suspected drunk driver slams into two power poles Monday around midnight.

The driver lost control of his pickup, hit the poles and overturned near the intersection of Benson Avenue and Welling Way.

The driver was unconscious when officers arrived. When he came to, he became combative after they pulled him out of the truck.

Since beer cans were found in the truck, officers say the driver could face DUI charges after he gets out of the hospital

SDG&E estimates power will restored around 7:30 a.m.
