Early morning crash knocks out power to more than half the city of Reedley

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Power has been restored to more than half of the city of Reedley after an early morning crash.

Just after 3 a.m. Monday, police responded to a report of a car into a power pole on I Street and Reed Avenue.

Officers at the scene say the driver, 18-year-old Bryant Pena was driving under the influence at the time of the crash.

He's now facing D-U-I and child endangerment charges since he was driving with a juvenile in the car.

PG&E crews say initially more than 2,200 customers were without power which included Reedley College and Reedley High.

PG&E was able to quickly restore power but it did take several hours to remove and replace the damaged pole.
