MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Marana police are looking for a driver who fled the scene around 2 a.m. Sunday after driving off the road and plowing into a fence and electrical pole near North Sanders and West Moore roads.

The single-vehicle collision caused about $10,000 worth of damage to the fence and pole, which is owned by Trico Electric Cooperative, said MPD Sgt. Chris Warren, a department spokesman. 

The incident left 30 customers without power, and all were restored in less than 20 minutes, according to Roberta Lopez-Suter, a Trico Electric spokeswoman.

When officers arrived at the scene, the vehicle was empty, Warren said. The Marana Police Department is following up to identify and locate the vehicle's driver.

Anyone with information should call the Marana Police Department at (520) 382-2000 or the 88-CRIME anonymous tip line.
