A white Volkswagen sedan was traveling northbound on Holmes when it collided with a power pole and a structure on the northeast corner of the intersection. The driver initially fled the scene, but returned approximately fifteen minutes after the crash. Officers briefly detained the driver, who passed a field sobriety test and subsequently released. Southern California Edison responded and has begun repairs on the power pole which was sheared from the base. CHP is handling the investigation.
