About 1,600 Kailua homes lost power this morning when a city refuse truck hit a utility pole knocking out a transformer, officials said.
The accident occurred around 8:30 a.m. at Makawao street and Kalaheo avenue near St. Anthony School.
A Hawaiian Electric Co. spokesman said crews restored power to all but 11 customers by 10:15 a.m.
