Evanston police are looking for the driver of a car who walked away from the scene after his vehicle hit a utility pole near Davis Street and Ashland Avenue about 9:10 this morning.

The damage to the utility pole reportedly has caused a loss of power to some homes in the immediate area around the crash scene.

Indications are the driver may have fled because the plates on the car had been reported lost or stolen.
