BOISE -- Traffic was blocked for hours at 15th and Jefferson Streets after a crash broke a power pole.

Witnesses told police that a pickup truck ran a stop sign and hit a SUV in the intersection. The SUV then hit and broke the power pole.

Police say the driver of the pickup will be cited for running a stop sign.

Over 6,300 Idaho Power customers were without power for about a half hour Friday morning. Idaho Power says they are still investigating whether or not this accident is the cause of that outage.
