Update at 5:05 p.m.:  PG&E is reporting that crews are getting a handle on a power outage in Tuolumne County that has impacted nearly 3,000 customers. The outage stretched from Jamestown to Groveland, including Pine Mountain Lake, and followed Jacksonville Road and Highway 120. Originally, 2,705 customers’ lights went off just after 1 p.m.; that number dropped to 86. Their estimated restoration time is still set at 7:30 p.m. The utility is now advising that the cause was “a car that hit a power pole. Around the same time this afternoon, we reported that the CHP was on the scene of a solo vehicle crash involving a sedan that smashed into a power pole on Quartz Alley and the Jacksonville Road intersection. The pole and live power lines came down across the vehicle. Luckily, there were no injuries in this collision.
