Power restored at apartment complex after hit and run crash

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — DP&L has restored power to a Dayton apartment complex, after service was knocked out during a hit-and run crash.

A car knocked out power to the Whitmore Arms Apartments when it hit a utility pole.

The crash happened in the 4600 block of Midway Avenue just before 1 a.m. Thursday.

Investigators said a driver was leaving the area after shots were fired nearby when he crashed into a pole.

When officers arrived, the driver was gone.

Power was out for several hours, before DP&L crews restored service around 6:30 a.m.

Hazmat teams were also called to the scene after reports of transmission fluid leaking into the sewer, but no environmental risk was found.

The incident remains under investigation.
