Collision on Alhambra Avenue causes power outage

MARTINEZ, Calif. – A vehicle collision on Alhambra Avenue led to a power outage Sunday.

At about 3:17 p.m. on April 30, officers from the Martinez Police Department (MPD) responded to the 6700 block of Alhambra Avenue for a report of a vehicle colliding into a telephone/electrical pole.  Officers arrived and located a single vehicle collision, downed pole and electrical wires blocking both north and south bound lanes of Alhambra Avenue.

Electrical power was interrupted between Blue Ridge Drive and Gregory Lane in Pleasant Hill.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured and preliminary investigation indicates the juvenile male driver fell asleep at the wheel, colliding with the pole. There is no indication alcohol or drugs played a role in the collision and the juvenile was released to his parents at the scene after a thorough investigation.

Both north and south bound lanes of Alhambra Avenue were closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic between Devon Avenue and Virginia Hills Drive while PG&E crews and Consolidated Fire worked to restore power and open the roadway.
