December 24, 2018

PHOENIX (AP) — A utility expects to have power restored to hundreds of Phoenix customers after a car crashed into a pole.

Arizona Public Service Co. says crews are working to complete repairs by noon Monday.

APS spokeswoman Suzanne Trevino says around 500 homes remain without power.

She says around 1,300 customers initially lost electricity.

According to Trevino, APS will also reimburse customers who bought bags of ice to keep perishable items from spoiling.

Phoenix police say the power outage occurred after a collision Sunday afternoon near 32nd and Roosevelt streets.
