An undetermined number of homes in West Peabody lost power Sunday afternoon after a car accident on Elizabeth Lane.
Peabody Municipal Light Plant says a vehicle crashed into a light pole at 24 Elizabeth Ln. and the pole was snapped in half, bringing down wires and the transformer.
A PMLP crew was still on scene around 3 p.m., replacing the pole and transformer. The crash was first reported around 2 p.m.
Peabody police say the vehicle apparently drove off after hitting the pole.
