ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police say drag racing is what led to a crash that injured several people and knocked down a power line in Albuquerque.

Officer Fred Duran says the crash happened early Sunday in the area of Arvilla Avenue and San Mateo Boulevard.

According to Duran, at least three vehicles were drag racing.

Several people have been taken to the hospital but police did not know the nature of their injuries.

He says at least one driver is being investigated for possibly driving while under the influence.

A stolen firearm was recovered from one of the cars.

The crash also took down a power line and caused an outage.

But PNM is expected to restore any outages shortly.
