Update: Power restored to most customers after crash

 

Most of the more than 1,500 PG&E customers who lost power after a big-rig crash this morning have had service restored.

Forty customers on Park Lane and Valparaiso, MacBain and Emilie avenues are expected to have power back by 5 p.m., according to the utility company.

PG&E said 1,439 accounts in Menlo Park and 299 in Atherton were affected. The traffic signal at Santa Cruz and Elder avenues in Menlo Park also lost power.

At about 9:15 a.m. on Friday (March 6), a big-rig truck was turning right from Emilie Avenue onto Park Lane when it hit the guy-wire and a telephone pole, knocking out the power, said Lt. Joe Wade of the Atherton Police Department.

Most customers had service restored by 11:10 a.m., PG&E said. Six crews were sent out to make repairs and will be working until about 10 p.m.
