WEST JORDAN, Utah — Westbound lanes of 6200 South were closed in the area near 4200 West as crews worked to clear the scene of a crash that caused a power outage Wednesday night, but the road has since reopened and power has been restored.

A photo from the scene shows the crash, and Rocky Mountain Power’s website indicated that an estimated 3,122 customers were without power as the result of a vehicle accident. Power was restored by about 10:14 p.m.

Officials on scene told FOX 13 News that a single vehicle crashed into a power pole, which put power lines on the ground. Injuries were minor, and officials said the cause of the crash is unknown at this time.

The power outage impacted customers in West Jordan, Taylorsville and Kearns in zip codes 84118, 84084 and 84129.
