CLOVIS, California. (KSEE/KGPE) – A car crash left thousands of homes without power on Sunday morning, according to PG&E.
The company reported on its website that over 4,000 customers were without power after a car crashed into a pole near Bullard and De Wolf avenues.
Since then, the website has been updated to say that only 27 customers are still without power as of 1:20 p.m. on Sunday.
