ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say a power outage that left more than 15,000 customers without electricity for about three hours was caused by a car crashing into a utility pole.

Public Service Company of New Mexico says power to homes and businesses was restored by midmorning Friday.

According to police, a vehicle struck a pole near Lomas and San Mateo boulevards.

No one was injured, but since the outage occurred during rush hour, police urged drivers to be patient and treat any intersection without a working traffic signal as a four-way stop.
