Can you sue someone that crashes into a power line poll and causes power surges thatruin your electrical equipment?

There was a wreck in our county and the person at fault tried to pass a moving truck, clipped them and rolled their vehicle into a power line poll, cutting it in two. Power at my house flickered off and on about 5 times. It killed my server that I use every week for work. Also, the church I attend has a computer that was damaged and a light projector that is now a nice paper weight. I’m sure I’m not the only one who had losses from this incident. I know for a fact that it was the accident that caused this because I was able to recover event logs from both PC’s for the exact time of accident.
