A Vallejo driver shut down part of Freeway Drive on Friday night after crashing into a power pole.

Freeway Drive between Imola Avenue and Old Sonoma Road was shut down around 2 a.m. after the driver sheared a power pole, shutting off power to the area, according to the Napa Police Department. Wires came down around the driver's car. The driver remained inside until a Pacific Gas & Electric Company employee could respond to the scene.

The driver had a three-day-old interim license. Police say the driver had been drinking but was not arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

PG&E told police that it would install new wires Saturday morning.
