LIVERMORE — More than 1,500 homes were without power Saturday night after a car went over a bridge and down an embankment along Route 4 next to the Androscoggin River. 

Dispatchers said that before going over the bridge, the car hit a telephone pole and blew a transformer, causing the power outages. 

No one was injured in the 8 p.m. crash and all power was restored to Livermore and Livermore Falls customers by Sunday morning, according to Central Maine Power. 

The cause remains under investigation by Maine State Police.
