Several south Nashville residents had a dark start to the morning after a driver reportedly fell asleep and crashed into an electrical pole.
The accident happened around 3 a.m. Friday on Elm Hill Pike near McGavock Pike. Authorities said the driver struck a guy wire connected to the pole.
The driver was not injured and his car wasn't badly damaged.
The impact did knock power out to a four-block radius near the scene, including several hotels.
The power has since been restored.
