Several Durham residents were in the dark Thursday night after a traffic accident.

Just before 9:30 p.m., someone smashed into a power pole at the intersection of South Miami Boulevard and Pleasant Drive. The pole then fell on a building.

The accident also caused some problems for drivers in the area. More than 15,000 people lost electricity.

Authorities are not saying if anyone was hurt in the accident.
