Update: Crash Maybe To Blame For San Andreas Power Outage
Update at 6:40 a.m.: A solo vehicle crash into a power pole may be to blame for a PG&E outage in the San Andreas are. The company reports eleven customers along Gold Hunter Road off Mountain Ranch Road have been without power since about 1:30 a.m. That is the same time the CHP reports a sedan smashed into a pole in the 1400 block of Gold Hunter Road. However, PG&E has not yet released a cause for the outage but confirmed that a crew is on scene assessing the situation. The CHP reports that the vehicle is holding up the pole and it needs to be stabilized before tow crews can remove it. That may be why company officials have given an estimated repair time of about 3:19 p.m.
There were no injuries reported in the crash.
