A crash in Cranston this morning knocked out power to hundreds of people just after 8 a.m.

Police say a tractor trailer truck was heading down Wilbur Avenue when it clipped several power lines causing two telephone poles to come crashing down, a third was damaged.

National grid is still on the scene and hopes to have power fully restored later this afternoon.

About 25 homes are still without power.
