CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- A crash has knocked out power to hundreds of customers in Bon Air Sunday night.

The wreck happened at Buford Road at W. Bon View Drive just before 9:30 p.m., according to Lt. Jason Elmore with Chesterfield Fire and EMS.

Elmore said the crash snapped a power pole, which likely means the road will be closed through 2:30 a.m.
