All but a handful of SMUD customers in south Sacramento have had their power restored after a car struck a pole near Mack Road, the Sacramento Municipal Utility District reported Tuesday morning.

SMUD reported the outage around 8:30 a.m., which initially affected 14,000 customers. By 9:30 a.m., SMUD said it had restored power to most of those customers.

Cosumnes River College was down for about an hour but has since had its power restored, according to campus spokeswoman Kristie West.
