August 27, 2014- A big rig collision caused a power outage in northwest Bakersfield, on Wednesday. The vehicle accident occurred on Rosedale Highway, in Kern County, at about 3:30 AM.
The early morning crash happened between a tanker truck and a car. The impact caused the semi truck to run down an embankment and smash into a utility pole and high voltage power lines, at Rosedale Highway and Coffee Road.
The tractor trailer then burst into flames after the collision. Power was out for more that 5,000 PG&E customers that morning.
It is reported that no one was injured in the accident.
