Car Accident Shuts Off Power to Hundreds of Residents

The Amarillo Police Department is still investigating an accident that left hundreds of people without power early this morning.

When officers arrived to the corner of 34th and Tradewind around three they found a car that had taken out a fence and power poll.

But the driver had fled the scene.

Xcel says 1,260 customers lost power and all of them had it back before noon.

Detectives are looking for the driver, who could face several charges.
