PHOENIX — More than 3,600 customers of an Arizona utility were without power Friday afternoon after a hit-and-ran crash in Phoenix.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said in an email that a vehicle collided with a parked car in the area of 36th Street and McDowell road around 11 a.m. No one was injured.

Shortly after, the vehicle crashed into a power pole in the area of 38th Street and McDowell Road. There were no injuries in the second accident.

The suspect fled the scene on foot and was taken into custody at his residence nearby. He was not identified.

An outage map from Salt River Project showed 3,665 customers without power in the area of 40th Street and McDowell Road.

Thompson said one lane of McDowell Road between 40th and 36th streets is blocked. The traffic signal at 36th Street and McDowell Road is also out.

It was not immediately clear when the power would be restored.

No other details were given.
