April 5, 2019

Update: As of 11:30 a.m., power had been restored to all but about 100 customers affected by the crash.

Power is out for about 6,000 customers of Madison Gas and Electric Thursday morning, and it could be several hours before it’s restored.

Spokeswoman Dana Brueck said a car hit a power pole at University Avenue and Allen Boulevard, causing the outage.

“Crews are on site making repairs, but it could take several hours,” Brueck said.
