The California Highway Patrol is looking for the driver of a car that crashed into a power pole early Monday morning. 

According to Robert Rodriguez with the CHP, the car crashed into a pole just before 4:30 a.m. Monday on Highway 223 and 184. 

The car knocked over the pole, leading lines to cause a small brush fire in the area. 

Rodriguez says the driver left the scene before the CHP arrived. 

He says PG&E will need about four hours to clear the pole and lines.
