(KAIR)--An early Sunday morning one-vehicle wreck in Atchison resulted in a power outage but left no injured.

According to a report from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, officers responded to the wreck at 6th Street and U.S. 59 Highway shortly before 2:30.

Wilson said an SUV driven by a St. Joseph, Missouri resident had been westbound on U.S.59 and was turning south onto 6th Street when the vehicle left the roadway and struck a utility pole.

The vehicle landed on its top. Wilson said the three occupants were able to get out of the vehicle before officers arrived.

EMS responded to the scene but no one required transport.

The utility pole and adjoining power lines were downed as a result of the wreck. Evergy crews were on the scene through the early morning hours to restore power to the area.

Traffic lights remain out until repairs can be made to a utility box.

The wreck remains under investigation.
