Grant Line Road in rural eastern Sacramento County will remain blocked until at least early afternoon after a big rig broke off a power pole.
The accident happened about 4:30 a.m. when a big rig driver failed to negotiate a curve when he was traveling northbound on Grant Line Road south of White Rock Road. The truck hit a power pole and lines started to arc.
The lines lowered and blocked Grant Line Road. The driver was not injured.
It is estimated that Grant Line will remain closed until at least 2 or 3 p.m., according to a Sacramento Municipal Utility District. Alternate routes are Douglas Road, White Rock Road or Sunrise Boulevard, according to California Highway Patrol officer Rich Wetzel.
