Man With Gunshot Wounds Crashes Truck Into Electrical Pole, Causes Power Outage in Santa Ana

A man with gunshot wounds crashed his truck into a power pole Thursday in Santa Ana, causing a power outage.

Officials transported the driver to a nearby hospital, where he remains in critical condition. Police are investigating what led up to the shooting and are considering it as possibly being gang-related.

The crash was reported at approximately 12:45 a.m. behind an alley on the 800 block of South Townsend Street, the Santa Ana Police Department said.

Authorities first estimated that power would be restored by 5:30 a.m., but were unable to recover electricity for the 139 customers missing it.  They now expect it to be restored by noon.
