November 1, 2011- A big rig crash causes hundreds of homes to be without power Tuesday afternoon, in Bakersfield.
The accident occurred on Highway 166 and Old River Road. The semi truck driver was driving his truck on the roadway when he lost control. He hit several power poles and flipped over, spilling his load of carrots onto the road.
The rig’s collision with the power poles left 240 PG&E customers powerless for an indefinite time period.
It is unknown why the driver lost control, or if he was injured in the crash.
