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.

Rainy days- especially some of the first of the season- require a driver’s full attention when behind the wheel of a car.

Roadway and operational impacts caused by rain include:

  • Pavement friction
  • Limited light reflection
  • Visibility distance
  • Lane obstruction
  • Darkened roads
  • Reduced reflectivity
  • Windshield glaring

There are several things to focus on while driving in the rain, but the most important is the road in front of you. Be sure to keep a safe distance between your vehicle, the vehicle in front of you, and the road’s shoulder; it is critical to allow yourself time to come to a complete stop safely, especially on slick roads.

Yuba City Police reported only minor injuries as a result of the collision. No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
