A car crashed into the back wall of a West L.A. home early Monday, taking down a utility pole in the process, officials said.   

Inspector Brian Riley said the Los Angeles County Fire Department was alerted about 4:51 a.m. of power lines down in the 5100 block of Angeles Vista Boulevard.

California Highway Patrol Officer Monique Mischeaux said an arrest was made in the solo crash.  

“The driver may have fallen asleep behind the wheel, and they are investigating whether he was under the influence,” Mischeaux said.  

No injuries were reported, she said.
