Highway 1 Crash Snarls Traffic, Knocks Out Power

A section of roadway closed after the 6:45 a.m. crash near Filbert Avenue in Half Moon Bay has been reopened. About 56 PG&E customers lost power.

The California Highway Patrol has reopened a section of state Highway 1 in Half Moon Bay this morning after a crash caused a live electrical wire to come down onto the roadway.

A vehicle struck a utility pole near Filbert Avenue at about 6:45 a.m., CHP Officer Marc Johnston said. No injuries were reported, he said.

The fallen electrical wire prompted the closure of the roadway in both directions for about 45 minutes.

PG&E crews were at the scene as of 7:30 a.m., spokeswoman Jana Morris said.

About 56 customers in southern Half Moon Bay were without power as of 8 a.m., she said.

PG&E expected to have power fully restored by 11 a.m.

To be clear I am still opposed to off-short oil drilling along our coasts and you can learn a great deal about me by watching the videos which is my passion to create, it's going to take you some time, there's something like 173 of them now: http://www.youtube.com/user/GShotsTV, and on my store's website: www.PacificPassions.us, the latest being on the late great Bill Drake, Publisher-Emeritus of the Pacifica Tribune.

Oh by the way I truly dislike King George Bush II and his lies and deceit, and total disdain for our Constitution, our sacred document which binds us all together in this unique experiment of participatory democracy and Sarah Palin, if that help understand me a little better. This Pacific Passions Playlist may make it easier to see the causes, people, places and things that I am truly passionate about: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLD100BC781D6760F6&feature=mh_lolz

Here try this link to learn a little bit more about who I am and what I stand for: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLD100BC781D6760F6 or this will Automatically PLAY ALL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKCu9HD7YYk&list=PLD100BC781D6760F6&feature=plpp_play_all, You may have to cut and paste the full link since Patch seems to split it at the question mark. I make many memorial and tribute videos, but since they take anywhere from 40 to 100 to produce I haven't made one since I did the one for Bill Drakes memorial in January. I actually prefer making Wedding and New Baby Videos, you may have a interest in those: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9E6E5BDFB9D37A30
