An alleged drunk hit and run driver is to blame for a power outage in east Topeka Saturday morning.
The female driver tried to make a get-away but hit a utility pole near the 500 block of southeast Liberty.
That caused a power outage extending from Branner to Golden, from 6th Street north.
The driver then ran from the accident.
A K-9 officer was able to find her soon after.
The 23-year-old woman faces charges of DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to report an accident.
Most of the electrical service to that area was restored by 4 a.m.
