Salinas Power Outage/Downed Line Hwy 101 10-15-13 06:30 av

Over 3,500 PG&E customers in North Salinas were left in the dark for several hours last night after a power line fell across a portion of Highway 101 near Laurel Drive during rush-hour traffic.   The incident occurred at 6:24 p.m. when the wire fell, damaging two vehicles as a result.  CHP says the line was sparking as cars drove by it, causing a portion of the highway to be shut down.   Traffic was routed on to Laurel Drive until the wire was deactivated and cleared from the highway around 7:30 p.m.   Power was restored as of 12:30 this morning.   The cause of the downed line is still being investigated.
