A Quality Inn Hotel in Montebello lost its power after a big rig crashed into a utility pole and sheered off a fire hydrant this afternoon, Montebello police said.

It happened about 3:50 p.m. on Telegraph Road near Gage Road, police said

There were people stuck in hotel elevators as a result of the power outage but they were rescued, according to police.
