Yuba City Power Restoration After Rainy Day Collision

PG&E has restored power for over 1,600 customers after Monday’s outage. The cause of this outage was linked to a broken power line after a vehicle collided with a pole. The driver of the vehicle was said to be traveling at an unsafe speed for rainy conditions.

highway rainTrucking accidents are often responsible for major injuries and fatalities, in large part due to the size and enormous momentum of the vehicles involved, especially fully-loaded trucks. Sacramento truck accidents are more common in large part because of the area’s location at the intersection of major north-south freeways like Interstate-5 and State Highway 99 with major east-west highways such as Interstate-80 and U.S. Highway 50.  It’s proximity to the major Port of Oakland as well as the Port of Sacramento itself, but even more large semi-trucks on the area’s roads.

Accidents just in recent months include:

Fatal Crash in Natomas

On Tuesday, August 18th there was a police pursuit that ended in one fatality. Prior to the event, police and an air unit were called to investigate reports of a shooting in the 2600 block of Stonecreek Drive in Natomas, CA where a man was reported to have fired off shots from a rifle while in a dispute with neighbors. It was also reported that the suspect fled the scene by a vehicle that was driven by a female driver.

Tinnitus is best defined as any sensation of a sound that does not arise from a source external to the person who experiences the sound. Although tinnitus is most often perceived as “a ringing in the ears,” a variety of other sounds, such as buzzing, humming, whistling, clicking, or roaring, may be heard.
