A traffic collision sent one person to the hospital and caused a power outage in Stevenson Ranch Wednesday morning.

The incident was reported shortly after 8:45 a.m. near the intersection of Hemingway Avenue and Bronte Lane, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department representative Geovanni Sanchez.

The two-vehicle collision downed wires, causing a power outage in the area that impacted approximately 475 customers, according to Southern California Edison spokeswoman Diane Castro and Sanchez.

“The crews are on (the) scene and have restored a portion of the customers,” Castro said, adding that crews were still working to perform repairs to fully restore power.

Edison’s outage map reported a 10 p.m. estimated restoration for affected customers as of 11:15 a.m.

One person was transported to the hospital as a result of the incident, Sanchez added.
