A crash caused a power outage for some residents in west suburban Franklin Park Friday morning.

A car struck a utility pole on Grand Avenue just before 7-30 a.m. The crash sent power lines across the street, which knocked out electricity to residents in the area.

ComEd crews were able to restore power a short time later. Grand was closed between Sunset and Mannheim until the wires were removed.
