A single car into a power pole at Combie Rd and Armstrong Rd knocked out power to about 3200 customers just after 2:30 Thursday afternoon. CHP Officer Greg Tassone tells KNCO the accident caused by a distracted driver.
Power was restored to almost all customers by 5:00 PM.
Traffic was severely impacted on Combie and Magnolia as well as turn lanes onto Combie from Highway 49 well into the evening. Traffic controls were in place while P G and E replaced the broken power pole.
