R Street closed after driver crashes into pole

Scanner traffic is indicating a vehicle has crashed into a power line at R and Hodgson streets in Eureka. The pole was knocked down, PG&E and officers are on scene. A reporter is also headed to the scene and we will update as soon as we have more information. R Street at Everding is being shut down, possibly for an extended period of time.

PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morris said: "We got a call at 12:28 that a vehicle hit power pole. It doesn't look like any customers are without power but the wire is down. That means the wire is live, which means electricity is running through it and we emphasize people need to stay away."
