Thousands are without power in San Francisco this morning after a big rig crashed into a utility pole on Potrero Hill, according to Pacific Gas and Electric.

The semi-truck knocked down the pole on 20th and De Haro streets around 9:30 a.m, cutting off power to almost 11,000 people in The City. By 11 a.m., PG&E said on Twitter that about 5,300 were still without power in the Mission and Potrero Hill.

The large truck, which carried a car on its bed, could be seen early Tuesday blocking the incline that is De Haro Street. The pole appears to have been disconnected from the ground and the truck backed into trees.
