Power is out after a truck crashed into a power pole on North 39th Street near Gus Young Avenue.

The crash caused power lines to lay across the street. News 2 saw Entergy workers surveying the damage. Baton Rouge Police say the driver crashed due to a medical problem. No charges were filed.

Entergy's website shows anywhere from one to 50 customers being affected.

News 2 called Entergy, but no word yet on how long power will be out or how long it will take for the pole to be repaired.
