200 PG&E customers without power in Belmont after truck hits utility pole 

About 200 PG&E customers in Belmont are without power this evening after a 17-year-old boy crashed his truck into a utility pole earlier in the day, officials said.

At about 8:45 a.m., the teenager was driving west in a Chevrolet pickup truck in the 200 block of Mezes Avenue when he crashed into a utility pole near Alameda de las Pulgas, according to the Belmont Police Department.

No one was injured in the crash, and no other vehicles were involved, according to police.

The pole was broken in half, and live electricity wires fell into the street. PG&E crews and the Belmont-San Carlos Fire Department responded to secure the scene.

PG&E crews were working to put up a new utility pole and hoped to restore service to the neighborhood at about 6:30 p.m., according to police.

The crash remains under investigation.
