    A car crash caused a power outage in Cleburne Sunday, impacting hundreds of people.

    ONCOR spokesperson Chris Schein told NBC DFW that a car hit a light pole at the intersection of Graham Avenue and North Main Street on Sunday morning. That created a domino effect on the electrical equipment which resulted in the power outage.

    Nearly 300 customers were affected. The electricity was restored by noon for most residents.
