Emergency in Fresno

Highway 99 in both northbound and southbound directions near Belmont Avenue has been reopened after downed power lines closed the highway. The California Highway Patrol reports that Fresno police responded to a non-injury accident Wednesday night on Parkway Drive between Belmont and Olive avenues. Officers say the crash struck a power pole, knocking down power lines onto Highway 99 in both northbound and southbound directions. The California Highway Patrol says the power lines also fell onto a vehicle, but no one was injured. As of 9:15 p.m. Wednesday, the only closures still in effect are the southbound on-ramp at Olive Avenue and the southbound off-ramp at Belmont Avenue. According to PG&E's power outage map, over 600 customers were initially without power, but that number has dropped to fewer than 200. PG&E estimates that power will be restored by 2:15 a.m. Thursday. The outage also affects Fresno Chaffee Zoo. Officials say due to spring temperatures, all animals are fine and are being cared for while they wait for PG&E to restore power. PG&E is working on the damaged power pole.
