Thirty-two homes lost power in Kennewick for several hours late Tuesday and early Wednesday after an SUV knocked down a power pole.
The driver of a Ford Explorer lost control at 10:45 p.m. Tuesday on West Seventh Avenue, said police Sgt. Ken Lattin.
The pole dropped live power lines across a second car until the Kennewick Fire Department arrived.
The driver ran from the scene and has yet to be arrested. Power was restored by 5 a.m., said Benton PUD spokeswoman Karen Miller.
