The crash knocked out power to customers in Norton Shores, Roosevelt Park and Muskegon Heights.

NORTON SHORES, Mich. — More than 1,000 people don't have power early Monday morning while crews work to repair a power line that was damaged in a car crash. 

Consumers Energy says it first received the report around 11:30 p.m. Sunday. As of 2:30 a.m., more than 1,200 customers were without power while crews worked to repair the line. 

Muskegon County Central Dispatch says it happened near the corner of Henry Street and West Norton Avenue in Norton Shores, near the border with Roosevelt Park and Muskegon Heights. 

Consumers originally estimated power would be restored around 5:30 a.m. Monday morning, but that has now been pushed back to 10:30 a.m. 

The condition of the driver and what caused the crash is still unknown at this time. 

We are also working to find out how many vehicles were involved.
