GLENDALE (CBS) — Crews restored power Tuesday afternoon to at least 300 residents after a small plane crashed into three power poles Monday night.

The Cessna 210 crashed at 8:30 p.m. Monday in the 1200 block of Glenwood Road near Grandview Avenue, according to FAA spokesman Ian Gregor.

The pilot, who was heading to Van Nuys Airport from Phoenix, reported mechanical issues over El Monte. He was diverted to Burbank, but crashed into the poles before coming to rest in the front yard of a home.

He was then transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he was treated and released Tuesday morning.

Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board were investigating the incident.

Sgt. Tom Lorenz of the Glendale Police Department asked that residents stay away from the area and refrain from touching any debris at the scene.
