Downed Utility Pole Blocking State Route 36


State Route 36 just west of Hydesville will be closed into the evening after a single car crash knocked a utility pole across the roadway.

Traffic is backing up while being rerouted through Rohnerville Road after the 1 p.m. accident, according to witness Ed Denson and the CHP Traffic Incident Information Page.

A man in his 80s suffered a serious arm break and was being taken to the hospital, according to medical personnel speaking over the scanner.

At 2 p.m., CHP page states that PG&E estimates that the closure will last six to eight hours.
