CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Neighbors in the Glenville community in Cleveland are spending part of their Christmas Eve in the dark.

Officials from Cleveland Public Power say a car crashed into a pole on East 93rd Street and St. Clair, knocking out power just after 8 p.m.

Crews are working to get the lights back on. There is no word on how long that could take, but CPP says it will be "long before Santa arrives."

Cleveland police say St.Clair will be closed for the next three to four hours while crews repair damage to utility poles and the RTA bus shelter.
