Power restored after pickup hits power poles in Nampa

NAMPA -- Crews restored electricity to more than a thousand homes after a crash damaged two power poles in Nampa Tuesday morning.

Nampa Police say the wreck happened at about 1:30 a.m. north of the Middleton Road/Smith Avenue intersection.

A pickup truck driven by a Nampa man veered off the road and sheared through one power pole before hitting a second pole. The driver was not hurt, and was released after he was cited for inattentive driving.

A total of 1150 homes were affected by the outage. Idaho Power repaired the damage, and electricity was back on for all but 23 customers by 8:30 a.m.

Middleton Road was blocked in both directions between Smith Avenue and West Kipling Way while crews worked, but have since been reopened.
