Several hundred homes were without power in the Vintage Hills, Vintage Heights and Foxborough Estates communities of Pleasanton Saturday night and early Sunday morning while another 900 homes had electrical blackouts in the far northwest section of the city Saturday night.
A driver, as yet unidentified, was hospitalized with moderate injuries after his vehicle struck a PG&E power pole on Dublin Canyon Road near Canyon Creek Circle about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Ralph Caggiano.
The vehicle was traveling west on Dublin Canyon Road when it struck the pole and overturned onto its roof, Caggiano said.
The victim was transported to Eden Medical Center with moderate injuries, according to Caggiano.
All PG&E customers affected by the outage had their power fully restored as of 9 a.m. Sunday.
In Vintage Hills, electric power started weakening about 3 a.m., and then completely went out about an hour later. Power was restored about 8 a.m.
PG&E trucks lined Crellin Avenue for much of Sunday morning as crews worked to repair underground damage to a transformer.
