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.
