A single car crashed into a power pole on Honey Creek Road Saturday night, knocking out power for area residents until after midnight. No major injuries were reported.

A 2007 black Honda Accord was heading east on Honey Creek Road near in the intersection with Madison Lane around 6:45 p.m. when the driver, a 27-year-old female Rockdale resident, heard a "pop sound" and lost control of the vehicle, according to the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office accident report.

The vehicle wavered between the left side and the right side of the road, went into the ditch and ended up hitting a power pole.

The driver and her infant son were able to safely get out of the car, but downed power lines reportedly started small grass-fires. By the time firefighters arrived about 15 minutes later, the grass fires were out.

The car's airbags did not deploy, and no one was reportedly transported to the hospital. No drugs or alcohol were reportedly involved.

Power was restored around 12:40 a.m. Sunday, May 20.
