TEMESCAL VALLEY: Crash brings down power lines

TEMESCAL VALLEY: Crash brings down power lines


A vehicle struck a pole bringing power lines down on a roadway and causing them to slouch over Interstate 15, CHP officials reported.

The incident was reported at 4:20 a.m. Monday, Aug. 3, at De Palma and Horsethief Canyon roads, a CHP incident log shows.

The pole was severed from the ground and lines were lying in lanes, the log says.

They were also drooping and in danger of falling across Interstate 15 lanes, so officials briefly closed both sides of the freeway to clear the lines, the log shows.

A brief power outage was reported, but by 7:45 a.m. no customers were affected, a Southern California Edison outage map shows.
