San Jose Police believe drunk driving led to a crash that caused nine big utility poles to topple over.

The utility poles were taken down by a four-door Honda that plowed into them shortly after 2:00 a.m. Monday along Hillside Avenue.

Officers arrested Diego Reyes, 18, on suspicion of felony drunk driving. A 17-year-old passenger had minor injuries.

PG&E officials say the incident knocked out power and phone service to several homes.
