Woman Crashes Car Into Pole Causing Power Outage

CORPUS CHRISTI - A woman driving down Kostoryz who police say may have been drunk swerved across the roadway and came crashing into a telephone pole.

That brought the pole crashing down along with the wires it was attached to at the intersection of Kostoryz and Holly.

It also took out another lightpole nearby.

Unfortunately that accident has knocked out power for at leas 2,000 people according to AEP.

Some of those people have gotten power back.

People in the area of Kostoryz and Holly have power back on, but those folks toward SPID are still in the dark.

The woman is being charged with DWI. She wasn't badly hurt in the crash.
