Police: Car hits pole, knocks out power

Authorities say a car hit a Yonkers utility pole Sunday and knocked out power to an entire neighborhood.

Police say drag racing may have played a part in the Palisade Avenue crash when the driver of a Honda Civic lost control of his vehicle and hit the utility pole.

Con Edison workers, who worked to repair the utility pole Sunday, say more than 200 homes lost power.
