A naked woman was rushed to a hospital after slamming her car into a utility pole, causing thousands of people to lose electricity, police in Washington said.
Seattle police said that more than 4,000 people were without power on Friday, after the woman crashed her car into the pole.
There were live power cables on the car when police arrived at the scene of the accident around 1:30 a.m. Firefighters and utility crews worked to remove the wires from the car.
Inside the car, they found a 24-year-old woman who was not wearing any clothes. The woman, who was not seriously injured, was taken to a hospital.
Police took a blood sample from the woman to determine if she was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. She did not carry any identification with her.
The accident knocked out power to about 4,400 people for about four hours.
