SOUTH COLUMBUS -- Hundreds of AEP customers lost power overnight after a police chase ended with the suspect slamming into a utility pole.
The crash happened around 11 p.m. Monday at the intersection of E. Williams and Groveport Roads.
Investigators told ABC 6/FOX 28 News that the chase started after they got a call about a robbery and stabbing on E. Hinman Ave. in Hungarian Village.
The caller described the getaway car to dispatchers and a passing CPD chopper spotted it trying to drive away.

Police said the chase wasn't "high speed" and the driver suffered only minor injuries.
The stabbing victim was taken to Grant Medical Center where she was last listed in stable condition.
Officers were waiting to interview the suspect early Tuesday morning.
