Vehicle Into Power Pole Blocks Roads in Campbell

A vehicle slammed into a power pole in Campbell late Sunday, closing down a Highway 17 offramp and possibly causing a power outage for hundreds in the area, according to Campbell police.

The crash occurred about 6:30 p.m. on Camden Avenue at White Oaks Road and left power lines down on Camden.

Both directions of Camden were shut down as police and emergency personnel arrived at the scene. There was no estimated time for reopening the road, and the Monday morning commute could be affected, police said.  

As of 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Camden Avenue was closed in both directions from Highway 17 to Bascom Avenue; White Oaks Road was closed at the 17 offramp; and Curtner Avenue was closed from McGlincy to Camden, police said.

It was not clear if anyone was injured in the crash, but power was knocked out for nearly 1,300 customers in the area.
