Wires were down after a single-vehicle wreck in Peru.

Police and paramedics were called just before 10:30 Tuesday morning about a SUV hitting an electric pole at 10th and Peoria Streets.  The pole was left leaning after the collision.  Crews closed Peoria Street for more than an hour to clear up wires that were downed. Ameren didn't report any outages as of noon due to the crash.

Peru Fire Chief Jeff King says the driver got distracted and jumped the curb.  She was checked out by paramedics.
