MAKAHA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - UPDATE:
The number of those without power in the Makaha area has been reduced to 700, a Hawaiian Electric Company spokesperson says.
The remaining customers will likely be without power until repairs can be made. A timeline for those repairs was not immediately known.
An earlier car crash caused utility wire to come down and damaged the pole's supports, but the pole itself did not need to be replaced, the HECO spokesperson said.
The accident, which happened near the intersection of Farrington Highway and Army Street, occurred at around 3:45 a.m. after a truck hit a utility pole.
Troubleshooters were working to resolve the issue.
