Arizona Public Service workers were trying to repair a power pole that had been hit by a pickup truck near a Phoenix backyard early Tuesday morning.
The truck also struck the back wall of the residence before the driver took off on foot, police said.
It appeared only the home adjacent to the pole suffered a loss of power, according to APS.
No other information was immediately available.
