IRVINGTON, New Jersey (WABC) -- Apparent forgetfulness ended up causing big power problems Friday night in New Jersey.

A crane brought down several electric lines in Irvington.

It turns out the truck driver didn't lower the crane before driving it.

More than two dozen homes were left dark.

PSE&G says power won't be fully restored until Saturday afternoon.
