Nearly 1,300 BC Hydro customers in Langley were still without power Wednesday morning after a Tuesday night crash.
A 20-year-old man from Surrey lost control of his car when he hit a pool of water travelling northbound on 200th Street just before 11 p.m. Tuesday night, causing him to crash into a ditch between 80th and 82nd, said Cpl. Holly Largy with the Langley RCMP.
No injuries were reported and the vehicle was removed just after 2 a.m. Wednesday, but many were left without power as a result.
Hydro crews were on scene of the outage impacting 200th Street between 80th Avenue and 92a Avenue Wednesday morning.
Traffic northbound on 200th Street in the area was heavily backed up during rush hour as crews blocked 80th Avenue to 82nd Avenue to restore power.
BC Hydro estimated to have the power restored in the area by 10 a.m.
