PEARLAND, Texas – An accident in Brazoria County has knocked out power for much of the west side of Pearland.

The wreck happened late Monday morning on Highway 288 and FM 518. Sky 2 aerials showed what appeared to be a Hummer next to a downed power pole.

The crash knocked out a transformer and emergency crews are on the scene.

About 4,500 customers are in the dark. CenterPoint Energy hopes to have power restored soon.
