LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Crews have restored power to the northwest part of Lubbock after a vehicle hit a pole on Wednesday morning, leaving residents without power for a short while.

The damage to the pole caused a lockout at a substation at around 7:45 a.m. in the northwest part of town, according to Lubbock Power & Light. The outage affected an estimated 2,100 LP&L customers.

Crews will remain in the area to continue to work on damaged equipment and make any necessary permanent infrastructure repairs.
