Hundreds are without power in a central Phoenix neighborhood after a car crashed into a power pole on Sunday afternoon.

According to Phoenix police, the car crashed into a pole near 32nd and Roosevelt streets.

Police on scene told KGUN9 that a father and son were in the car, and were taken to the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

According to the APS outage map , as of 8:00 p.m., there were about 500 customers without power in the area.

The Associated Press spoke with APS spokeswoman Suzanne Trevino, who said APS will reimburse customers who bought bags of ice to keep perishable items from spoiling.

Power is expected to be fully restored by early Monday morning.
