Vienna police say that a crash late Saturday night (Jan. 18) caused a power outage.
Police said that a vehicle traveling northbound in the 500 block of Hillcrest Drive ran off the road and struck a utility pole, causing it to collapse on top of the vehicle along with the power lines.
The incident happened around 10:30 p.m.
“The three occupants fled the scene before officers arrived,” police said. “The power company responded immediately to shut off the power and make repairs.”
After a search, police said they found the 21-year-old driver from Reston. He was released on his signature.
Shortly after midnight, police say that a drunk man in the 600 block of Hillcrest Drive was disrupting police investigating the hit-and-run.
“Upon the officers’ interaction with the man, they detected signs of impairment,” police said.
Police charged the man, a 23-year-old from Chantilly, with being drunk in public, and he was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
In a separate incident, a Vienna resident told the police that a stranger hacked his Snapchat account last Thursday (Jan. 16) and used his identity to solicit money from one of his friends, police say.
