Weekend crashes result in highway closure, utility damage

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – A number of crashes around the county on Sunday and early Monday caused highway closures and affected utilities when vehicles hit poles.

A crash on Point Lakeview at Anderson Road, between Kelseyville and Lower Lake, shortly before 1:30 p.m. Sunday involved a vehicle going into a power pole, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The incident resulted in a two- to three-hour closure of the roadway while power and utility companies were called to make repairs and the county roads department was notified, the CHP reported. Subjects involved in the crash were treated and released with minor injuries.

Shortly before 4:30 p.m. several vehicles were reportedly involved in a crash on Highway 20 at Stokes near Robinson Rancheria, according to reports from the scene.

One of the vehicles reportedly was overturned, and traffic control was implemented, the CHP reported.

While reports from the scene indicated many “walking wounded,” minor injuries resulted. The names of those involved wasn't immediately available.

Highway 20 was completely reopened at 5:42 p.m., the CHP reported.

The CHP also responded to a crash with major injuries at 26800 Reiff Road at Morgan Valley Road in Lower Lake at 8:40 p.m.

A male subject was injured and bleeding, but no further details were available.

Just before 1:30 a.m. Monday, another collision between a vehicle and a pole was reported on Mira Vista outside of Clearlake. A tree became tangled in the pole and guide wire, but only vehicle damage was reported, according to the CHP.
