SOUTH SALT LAKE — Police are searching for a driver who they say crashed into a power pole in South Salt Lake early Thursday.

The crash took place just after 1 a.m. Thursday near 2350 South and 900 West, according to South Salt Lake police.

One driver crashed into a power pole, causing the pole to fall, according to South Salt Lake Police Sgt. Tyler Cluff. Three other cars had either the power pole or power lines fall onto them, according to Cluff.

The driver of the car that crashed into the pole fled the scene on foot, Cluff said. The other people involved were able to get out of their cars safely and weren't injured, he added.

Power was affected for several businesses in the area, but all the businesses were closed when the crash occurred, Cluff said. All traffic lanes have reopened in the area.

Further information about the crash wasn't available.
