    Update 4:52 p.m.: 300 still without power

    Crews have restored power to most of the area affected by Sunday's airplane crash, but about 300 homes were still without power Sunday evening, L.A. Department of Water & Power said.

    Spokeswoman Kim Hughes said the plane took out several power poles before crashing.

    "The plane came and clipped three power poles, and took out two high-voltage lines and one residential line," Hughes said. "It took a bit of time because again it's an investigative accident site, but we've been able to reroute power to the commercial and we're working on getting the wires rerouted and getting service back up to the residential customers impacted."

    Hughes said the agency doesn't have a estimated time that the power will be restored to all the homes, but says they're working as quickly as they can around the investigation.
