A stolen van crashed into a pole, knocking out power for thousands on the south side of Pueblo.
A second outage on the north side of town is not believed to be related.
Police say the van missed a turn on the 4500 block of Goodnight near Pueblo Boulevard and hit a power pole.
Both outages combined affected more than 6,400 customers on both the north and south sides of town.
The power was back on within about an hour of the crash.
