A pickup truck hit a power pole and caused a power outage at Sanger High School for nearly half an hour Tuesday evening, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. said.
The collision was near Annadale and McCall avenues in Sanger. A pickup truck with a trailer hit the pole and the impact sheared the pole from its base, PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi said. The wire held the pole up off the ground but it was leaning, Guidi said.
The outage lasted from approximately 5:25 to 5:50 p.m.
Parts of McCall Avenue will be closed to traffic as PG&E works to repair the pole. Guidi said PG&E expects the repairs to be finished in the early morning hours Wednesday.
