Crash knocks out power to 4,000 PG&E customers in east Santa Rosa
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. crews were able to restore power to about 4,000 customers after a two-car crash damaged a power pole near Fourth Street and Brush Creek in east Santa Rosa Monday.
The 11:30 a.m. outage initially affected 4,000 customers, but crews were able to restore service to about 1,000 within a few minutes, PG&E spokeswoman Deanna Contreras said.
The remaining 3,000, except for the property with the power pole, had electricity restored by 1 p.m.
Details on the crash were minimal Monday afternoon, but Santa Rosa Police Sgt. Dave Marconi said two people had to be transported to a local hospital after sustaining injuries that were not life-threatening. It was unclear what caused the crash.
