Accident takes out pole, power


Nearly 300 homes in Allentown have their power back after an accident early Monday knocked it off for several hours.

Just after 12 a.m., police said a car crashed into a utility pole at Fourth and Normandy streets.

The impact snapped the pole in half and sent one person to the hospital with moderate injuries.

There's no word on what caused that crash.
