Sparks Police report that a car crash cut the power for several blocks of houses in Sparks in the early morning on March 1st.

According to SPD, at around 3:15 a.m. officers were called to a single vehicle accident at the intersection of Hubble and Allegrini Drives. When they arrived, they found a car had been driving southbound on Hubble when it slipped off the road and hit a utility box and a streetlight. As a result of the crash, power, cable and phone services were cut for several blocks of houses.

Police say four men where inside the car, but were not injured in the crash. They say alcohol is not a factor in the incident, but speed and wet roads may have caused the crash. The driver, identified as a 23-year-old Sparks man, was cited for the accident.
