More than 4,000 PG&E customers lost power when a woman slammed her vehicle into a power pole early Sunday.

The collision knocked live electrical wires into the street near Meadow Lane and Market Street in Concord just before 5 a.m.

Police suspect the woman was drunk driving. She had a child with her and they tried to run away from the crash scene, but they were found a short distance away.
