KAYSVILLE, Utah (ABC4 News) –  Power has been restored to the thousands of Kaysville residents who had to go more than 24 hours without power after a suspected impaired driver crashed into a power pole Saturday morning. 

Kaysville Chief of Police Sol Oberg said the crash happened near 200 N I-15 on the off ramp of exit 328 at about 4 a.m. when 26-year-old Jason Exley lost control and crashed into a power pole, knocking out power to most East Kaysville and some of West Kaysville. 

Exley was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released. He was then booked into the Davis County Jail on charges of DUI and reckless driving. 

The Mayor of Kaysville had been keeping the residents informed by posting regular updates as to the status of the power outages on the city’s Facebook page. 

The Veteran’s Day event scheduled at Davis High School at 11 a.m. has been cancelled. 

Kaysville Power and UDOT had to close both direction of I-15 at 200 North in Kaysville from 10 p.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. so crews could fix the lines that drape across the freeway. 

According to Kaysville City Facebook, the power crews worked tirelessly to get power restored. They ran into a few small issues overnight. The lines were successfully strung across Interstate 15. As of 10:30 a.m. Sunday power had been restored to all residents of Kaysville.
