Utility crews worked Tuesday to restore power for thousands of customers in National City, and the communities of Bay Terraces, Paradise Hills and Skyline that lost service when a vehicle struck a telephone pole.

According to the San Diego Police Department, the power outage was reported shortly after 2 p.m. when the vehicle hit the pole on Parkside Avenue and Beatrice Street near the community of Bonita.

One person was trapped in the vehicle, but couldn’t be extricated from it until a live wire was safely removed, SDPD said. It was unclear if the person was injured.

At one point, the outage affected up to 5,000 utility customers, a San Diego Gas & Electric spokeswoman said. As of 4 p.m., 1,243 customers were without power, according to the San Diego Gas & Electric website.
