MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A car crash brought down a power pole overnight southwest of the Twin Cities, briefly affecting homes in the area amid subzero temperatures.
The Scott County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday morning that the crash happened along County Road 42 in Savage, about 20 miles south of Minneapolis. A car slammed into one of the power poles, bringing it down and damaging others nearby. There was no word on if the driver was hurt.
