While the winter storm is expected to cause power outages throughout the area, police say it was actually a hit-and-run driver who cut out the lights on one street in Wissinoming.

A driver crashed into a utility pole on Bridge and Charles Streets around 11:15 p.m. on Tuesday, snapping the pole in half and sending wires down across the roadway.

Investigators say the driver then ran away from the scene.

PECO crews are currently working to restore power to homes on the street.

Officials say the driver is still on the loose. Police have not yet identified the suspect.
