More than 1,500 Westside Residents Lose Power Sunday

Car crashes into utility pole on Sunnyslope Drive

More than 1,500 Petaluma residents lost power Sunday night after a car crashed into a phone pole on Sunnyslope Drive near G Street.

The phone pole had electrical wires inside, knocking out power from G Street to Petaluma Boulevard South and from Sunnyslope Drive south to the end of town starting 4:20pm.

Power was still out when the sun set, but was restored around 6pm, according to PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morris.

I have to say, the PG&E automated system was up immediately and gave out good information. It even offered to give me a wake up call in the morning. Thanks PG&E! Hope the driver is okay too!

Id like to know how a car hit a pole on that street. Its a residential st with a 30mph limit. Whoever did this, gee thanks& hope ur ok,but good grief be more careful,cuz unless this person had a medical emergency, there's no reason to hit a pole on that street. Plus, our power cam on& off 5 times before it finally went out. Seeeshh. At least pg&e got it back fairly fast.
