WEST SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) — A Pacific Gas & Electric employee has died after his truck crashed into a traffic signal pole as he was driving during stormy weather.
West Sacramento police say the driver lost control of his vehicle before 2 a.m. on Friday, and the rainstorm moving through the area may have been a factor.
The worker died at the site of the crash.
PG&E workers at the scene said that the driver had been working overtime and was returning from Clarksburg in southern Sacramento County.
The traffic signal pole was damaged and was being replaced before traffic could begin using the intersection.
