A woman slammed her vehicle into a power pole and was killed early today in a residential Moreno Valley area, and the crash blacked out some homes.
Sheriff’s deputies received a call at 3:45 a.m. from the corner of Perris Boulevard and Bay Avenue, where the woman was trapped in the wreckage, Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Melody Hendrickson said.
The woman died at the scene. Her name was not disclosed pending notification of relatives.
A related power outage was reported along Branch Street, one block west of the fatal crash. One hundred seven homes were out of electricity as crews replaced lines and the pole, according to Southern California Edison.
Repairs should be complete by 10 p.m. tonight, SCE reported.
