A 46-year-old woman has been charged with driving under the influence in the weekend crash that knocked out power to downtown Fairbanks.

Reports say Tina L. Bolt is also charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a revoked license.

Fairbanks police say Bolt on Saturday night tried driving a sport utility vehicle east on Second Avenue and hit multiple signs and parked cars, including one in which a man and woman were sitting.

Police say the man confronted Bolt and told her to stay but she fled.

Police say Bolt sideswiped another car, crashed through barricades in a construction area and smashed into a power pole.

The pole fell on the SUV and power was interrupted for about a half hour.
