Crash Results In Power Outage
66 PG&E customers are without electricity due to the big rig accident on Highway 49.
The big rig truck went off the Highway and hit a power pole at around 5:10AM. Highway 49 remains closed due to cleanup, and a marked detour has been set up in the area. Caltrans Spokesperson Chantel Miller now says that Highway 49 could be closed until around 10 o’clock this morning.
No one was hurt in the crash. The driver was reportedly trying to avoid a deer when the truck went off the highway.
