Car hits pole, knocks out power to HVL residents

HIDDEN VALLEY LAKE – A Friday night crash caused many Hidden Valley Lake residents to be without power for more than 16 hours.


A vehicle colliding with a power pole caused the outage, according to Pacific Gas & Electric spokesman JD Guidi.


Guidi said the outage began at 8:32 p.m. Friday after a vehicle hit and destroyed a power pole at 17179 Knollview Drive in Hidden Valley Lake.


It took PG&E crews until 12:46 p.m. Saturday to finish repairing what Guidi called “extensive damage.”


“They had to replace the pole,” said Guidi.


A total of 1,855 customers were affected, Guidi said.
