A woman whose car crashed into a power pole on Occidental Road west of Santa Rosa Thursday morning might have suffered a seizure before the collision, a California Highway Patrol officer said.
Contrary to earlier reposts, the unidentified woman was not injured in the 9:45 a.m. collision near Piezzi Road, but was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for observation, CHP Officer Kerri Post said.
CHP Officer Jon Sloat yesterday said a silver Toyota struck and knocked down a power pole and telephone wires around 9:45 a.m. The pole fell on top of the vehicle, according to CHP.
The eastbound lane of Occidental Road was shut down and two-way traffic control was in effect until the investigation and clean-up was complete.
The CHP initially reported the woman suffered major injuries. No further details have been released by CHP at this time, and the name and condition of the injured driver are unknown.
