It looks like a hurricane hit a street in East Oahu.
But instead it was just one car that hit a utility pole which caused other power lines and poles to come down like dominos.
It happened on Kuliouou road just around 3:30 Saturday morning.
Neighbors say a driver fell asleep behind the wheel and crashed into a utility pole, waking up to a nightmare.
"It just all of a sudden...bang and explosion!"
"There was actually 3 bangs. The initial pole falling down and then the ones after that. I knew something was different," says Roger Gulledge, a Kuliouou resident
When the white truck hit the pole it caused four other poles to topple over, leading to a spider web of wires and cables.
"He was trying to pull the truck out, but the lines had fallen in behind him. So the truck couldn't get out," explains Hauoli Reeves, a Kuliouou resident.
Electricity was also out for more than a thousand customers in the Kuliouou area.
HECO crews were on scene by 8 Saturday morning to begin their repair work. They were removing the fallen poles and replacing them with new ones
"There are a lot of cables being put on these utility poles and it's causing a problem," points out Richard Ching, a Kuliouou resident.
HECO says there share the utility poles with telephone and cable companies as well. Oceanic confirmed it doesn't always take it's old lines down.
"Well, when all the poles are rotten, the weight of the one pole going down just pulled the others with it," adds Gulledge.
There were also obvious signs of termite damage, but a HECO spokesperson was not ready to comment on that.
"We will be investigating the cause of the outage and getting more details on the accident itself ," Barbara Heckathorn told us by phone.
They also were not sure when the last time these particular poles had been inspected
"There is a regular program for inspecting poles throughout the state, we have quite a few poles out there and we inspect quite a few every year," adds Heckathorn.
Neighbors are just glad that it wasn't worse.
"Luckily, nobody got hurt."
And they hope this incident will be a wake up call to the utility companies. HECO was able to complete the repair work and restore power to all customer by 3:30 p.m.. Saturday afternoon.
