TEMPERANCEVILLE, Va.- Authorities say five people were taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for injuries they sustained after the car they were riding in struck a utility pole in Accomack County late Sunday night.

The crash, which occurred just before midnight on Route 13 in Temperanceville resulted in a temporary power outage in the surrounding area, police said.

Minutes after the outage, crews responded to the Tyson chicken processing plant located a few miles away from the car crash site. Police said a ventilation system failed at Tyson, which caused a small fire on the roof of the building. Investigators said they are trying to confirm if the utility pole being hit could have triggered the small building fire.

There is no official word yet on what caused the crash and the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
