(Oxnard, CA) On Thursday, April 19, 2012 at about 12:44 p.m., Oxnard PD officers and fire personnel responded to a traffic collision in the 1000 block of Oxnard Boulevard – State Route 1. Upon arrival, officers found that a green sedan, driven by a 17-year-old male, had collided with an electrical transformer located in the parking lot of the Cabo Restaurant at 1041 S. Oxnard Boulevard. The collision caused the high-voltage lines that span across Wooley Road to fall onto the roadway creating a severe electrical hazard for both motorists and pedestrians. The downed power lines also disrupted power to several surrounding businesses and traffic control signals in the immediate area.
 
Southern California Edison officials responded to the scene and are currently working on replacing the downed lines and restoring power to the affected businesses.
 
To facilitate repairs, Wooley Road between “C” Street and Oxnard Boulevard (Five Points) will remain closed in both directions. Edison officials say that the repairs will take several hours and estimate a completion time of 2:00 a.m. on Friday. Motorists are advised to take alternate routes.
 
The driver of the sedan was not injured in the collision. Investigators are trying to determine why he veered off the road.
