WATCH: There was a minor crash after power went out to about 10,000 BC Hydro customers in Greater Victoria
Thousands of BC Hydro customers were left in the dark Wednesday morning after an issue with a substation.
BC Hydro says an animal caused the outage after coming into contact with the substation.
The disruption of service lasted for about an hour.
A minor traffic accident, at Harriet and Burnside, likely resulted from power being out to the traffic lights at that intersection.
There were no injuries in the crash.
The lights came back on at about 9 a.m.
Customers in View Royal, Esquimalt, Saanich, Oak Bay and Victoria were affected.
