More than 1,000 residents in Carpentersville, Algonquin and West Dundee were without power Friday after an overhead streetlight crashed into power lines along Huntley Road just east of Randall Road in Carpentersville, likely a result of high winds.
There were no injuries as a result of the downed pole which occurred just before 11 a.m., but westbound traffic on Huntley Road was stopped for roughly 10 minutes while crews removed the pole from the area.

Carpentersville Deputy Police Chief Michael Kilbourne said he believes the pole came down in the high winds, since no vehicles were involved when police initially responded to the call.
"There was no (traffic) accident, it appeared to be wind related," Kilbourne said.
"ComEd came by, removed the pole, reset the power and we're good to go."
The power was fully restored just before 1 p.m., a ComEd spokeswoman said.
