Saanich Police say alcohol may have been a factor in a single-vehicle collision in Saanich Friday night.
A pickup truck crashed into a utility pole around 8:30 on Shelbourne Avenue near McKenzie.
The impact knocked out power to almost 2,000 people for around 12 hours.
One lane on Shelbourne was closed overnight until crews repaired the hydro pole Saturday morning.
The driver in his 30s was taken to hospital, but released with minor injuries. Police say he was alone in the vehicle, and is not facing charges at this stage, but the investigation continues.
