TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Authorities are searching for the three suspects from a Tuesday morning carjacking suspects on the south side of Tucson.

Chris Hawkins, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said the victim was carjacked around 9:30 a.m. near South Nogales Highway and Drexel Road.

The suspects later crashed the car into a power pole near 12th Avenue and Nevada Street, knocking out power to more than 5,000 TEP customers.

"It was loud enough where I could hear from the inside of my business even though we have a little bit of music inside, I could still hear the crash," said  Michel Sandoval, who works near the scene of the accident.

As of 5:30 p.m., the intersection  of 12th Avenue and Irvington was still closed, but power was restored around 2 p.m.

Hawkins said the suspects, who fled the scene on foot, should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
