- A garbage truck is causing a major headache for people living in a Phoenix neighborhood.

The truck crashed into a pole and knocked down a power line near 15th Avenue and McDowell.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. and about 1,400 residents lost power.  People had no air conditioning in their homes for hours.

By Saturday morning, electricity had been restored for people living in the area.
