Vehicle Hitting Pole Knocks Out Jenny Lind Power

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — Shortly after midnight an unidentified driver in a 2005 Chevy Cobalt, traveling eastbound on Hartvickson Lane at a high rate of speed between Brooks Rd. and Cane Lane, failed to negotiate a curve to the left and allowed the vehicle to run off the road where it collided with a utility pole.

The driver and a passenger immediately abandoned the vehicle. The impact severed the pole at the base breaking a high voltage power line as well as several telephone and television cables.

The broken high voltage line started a small grass fire that was quickly extinguished by the Jenny Lind Fire Protection District, Foothill Fire Protection District and CAL FIRE personnel.

P.G.& E. responded by turning off the power in the area of Hartvickson Lane from Baldwin St. to Silver Rapids Rd. in order to make repairs. P.G.& E. is anticipating full restoration sometime between 10am and noon today.
