A woman on her way to take her daughter to swim practice lost control of her SUV just after 6 p.m. Wednesday, jumped a curb on Sunol Boulevard, and knocked down a power pole and a tree, according to police.
Pleasanton police officer Chris Niederhaus said the woman was planning to make a right turn in her Ford Explorer on Arlington Drive but became distracted and veered off toward the sidewalk.
No one was injured. Niederhaus said neither speed, alcohol nor drugs appeared to be factors in the crash, which occured just off the Interstate 680 freeway exit, right before the "Welcome to Pleasanton" sign.
The city's streets department was also called to turn the power off in the immediate area, Niederhaus said.
