Power has been restored in Moose Jaw, Sask., after an alleged drunk driver plowed into a power pole late Thursday night.

Police said the crash, which happened shortly after 11 p.m. CST, left a "large portion" of the east side of the city in the dark.

The driver was heading north on the 300 block of 3rd Ave. NE when the vehicle smashed into the pole, police said. 

The driver then continued driving, hitting a parked van, a fire hydrant and two more parked vehicles.
Police arrested him about a block away from the downed power pole.

A 37-year-old man has been charged with impaired driving, driving with a blood-alcohol level over .08 and failing to remain at the scene of the accident.

Police are investigating to see if there will be additional charges.

SaskPower said the power was restored Friday morning.
