A suspected drunk driver lost control of his sedan, slammed it into a power pole and caused the pole to buckle at its base today in Lake Elsinore.

The driver, Adrian Rene Quesada, 19, of Wildomar, was driving on Railroad Canyon Road in a Honda Civic when he crashed near Church Road, Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. David Cardoza said. The impact caused Quesada's car to veer down the road and careen into a ravine, but he climbed out uninjured.

The crash was reported at 12:45 a.m., and it forced the closure of Advertisement

Railroad Canyon Road between Church Road and Summerhill Drive. Southern California Edison crews worked to replace the unstable power pole, but the lines did not fall and there was no outage, SCE spokeswoman Maureen Brown said.

Work crews are expected to remain at the repair site until 3 p.m., Brown said.

Quesada was "detained" by sheriff's authorities in connection with the crash, and alcohol consumption appeared to be a factor, Cardoza said.

report about the crash will be submitted to the Riverside County District Attorney's Office for prosecution, the sergeant said.
