Forklift crash causes power outages, road closures

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A forklift crashed into a fire hydrant in East County Friday, causing water to gush near electrical boxes and prompting an indefinite road closure.

The mishap occurred on Calle Albara near Wieghorst Way in Rancho San Diego at 8:04 a.m., a California Highway Patrol dispatcher said.

The CHP closed Calle Albara until further notice because of the potential danger from water flowing near electrical boxes, the dispatcher said.

San Diego Gas and Electric was called to the scene to turn off the water and electricity.

No injuries were reported.
