SANTA MARIA, Calif. -- Highway 1 was closed Friday morning after a car crashed into an electricity pole in Santa Maria.
Around 4:11 a.m., Santa Maria CHP responded to reports of a car crash on Highway 1 by the Rancho Santa Maria Golf Course.
Upon arrival, officers found that a white Chevy Tahoe had crashed into an electricity pole, leaving the wires smoking.
PG&E was requested to restore the damaged pole.
Due to the potential of a big rig crashing into the downed wires, officers closed down Highway 1 to traffic to prevent the incident from worsening.
The white Chevy was towed away.
There were no reported injuries.
Officials say Highway 1 will remain closed for about four to six hours.
