12:12pm Sunday 20th April 2014 in News
Nearly 90 people were left without power after a car crashed into an electricity pylon.
The crash happened at about 10.20pm on Saturday in Colemans Hatch.
Fire crews were called as the crash, near Claypit Farm, caused the front of the car to ignite, but the blaze was quickly extinguished.
The driver of the car was able to escape the vehicle and did not need hospital treatment.
But the impact caused power in the local area to be lost.
A UK Power Networks spokesman said: "UK Power Networks can confirm that due to an incident involving a vehicle crashing in to an electricity pole at 10.23pm last night, 89 customers in the Colemans Hatch area experienced an interruption to their power supply.
"Our engineers responded quickly to repair the fault that was caused and restored 82 customers by 10.44pm. A generator was installed while our engineers make further repairs and the remaining seven customers had their power restored at 3am".
