Andover Police say a car crashed into a transformer Saturday afternoon, causing a loss of power for a number of residents.

It happened before 2 p.m., near Andover Road and Douglas when for an unknown reason a vehicle left the roadway, crashed into a transformer and caught fire.

Police said everyone inside the vehicle got out safely and no one was injured.

Evergy was able to restore power to most of those affected within 30 minutes, however some residents waited until evening for the power to return.

Andover Police are investigating and say speed may have been a factor in the crash.
