Crash brings down power lines on Mark West Springs Road

Power lines brought down when a vehicle struck a utility pole on Mark West Springs Road north of Santa Rosa slowed traffic through the area Friday morning, the CHP said.

There were reports the road was briefly closed east of Riebli Road before 8 a.m., but authorities soon set up one-way traffic control near Lorraine and Michelle ways, authorities said.

Preliminary reports indicated an SUV drove over an embankment around 7:45 a.m. and broke the pole in half, dropping lines near the ground.

No injuries were reported.
