Power restored in Apache Junction after accident

PHOENIX — About 1,000 people in a Phoenix suburb were without power early Friday after a car crash.

The accident near Main Street and Ellsworth Road took down two Salt River Project power poles. About half of the customers got power back within an hour but the rest were expected to be without electricity for a few hours.

It was already above 80 degrees in the area at 8 a.m., with an expected high of around 105.

The power has since been restored to the area.
