(CNS): An crash early Saturday morning caused a power outage for parts of West Bay that lasted several hours. The police said that a Silver Nissan Skyline had veered off the road and struck a light pole on North West Point Road in a single vehicle smash and a 21-year-old driver was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drinking and driving. CUC said electricity was cut when the car hit the light pole at about 3:15am and was restored around three hours later to all customers.
The pole was knocked down with electricity wires still attached to it, which not only caused the outage but also obstructed the northbound lane.
The driver was slightly injured and taken to the George Town Hospital following his arrest on suspicion of DUI.
