A car ran into a power pole around 9 p.m., tearing down lines near Sweetwater and Camino de Oeste on the west side.
Northwest Fire District spokesman Adam Goldberg said the accident has caused a significant outage. Around 120 homes are without power and it could be out until sometime Saturday morning.
The driver crashed into two poles on Camino De Oeste. He was checked out by paramedics but was not transported to a hospital. Pima County Sheriff's Deputies have conducted tests to see if he was drunk or not.
