A crash in Ralston is to blame for power outages in the area Friday morning.

The Ralston Police Department says the crash, which happened around 10 a.m., left the stop light at 72nd and Drexel damaged.

The Omaha Public Power District says crews are working to repair a switch gear box that was also damaged.

“Customers in this area may experience brief outages while the equipment is isolated and repaired,” the power company wrote in a post on their Storm and Outage Center blog.

The OPPD outage map showed about 300 customers without power at point.
