More than 850 San Diego Gas & Electric customers in Vista were without power Sunday morning due to a vehicle crash.

The single-vehicle collision, in the 1900 block of South Santa Fe Avenue, just before 2:30 a.m., involved an SUV that slammed into a power pole, splitting it in half.

The pole landed on its side near a tree.

At least one motorist had to be extricated from the wreckage, but was not seriously injured. SDG&E officials said power would be restored later in the morning. By the late afternoon, the utility’s outage map showed no ongoing incidents.
