OKLAHOMA CITY – Many people were without power Wednesday morning after an Oklahoma City police officer accidentally crashed a patrol car into a power pole.

The single vehicle crash took place on north Bryant Avenue near Wilshire Boulevard around midnight.

Oklahoma City Police say an officer was driving southbound on Bryant when the officer ran off the road and hit a power pole, knocking out power in several areas.

OG&E officials say the crash caused four power poles to fall.

People in the area may still be experiencing power outages.

Wilshire is closed between Eastern and Bryant until 10 a.m. while OG&E works to fix the problem.

Fortunately, the officer is expected to be okay.
