MIRAMAR, FLA. (WSVN) - A vehicle used by construction workers clipped electrical wires, causing a pole to land on multiple cars in Miramar.

Florida Power & Light was also on the scene working to restore power after a handful of homes in the area lost it.

Residents are reminded to report any power pole-related concerns to FPL.
