Some Longmeadow residents were without power Saturday night after a young driver hit and knocked over a utility pole.

According to the Longmeadow Police Department, Eversouce and Comcast crews worked through the late evening and into the early Sunday morning hours to replace a utility pole that was knocked down on Crescent Road Saturday night. 

Police say the driver was distracted by the passengers in their car when they drove off the road and struck the pole. 

No injuries were reported.

Police are reminding young drivers to follow Junior Operator Laws.
