Motorist hits a gas pipeline
On Sunday, February 13, a female motorist accidentally steered her vehicle into a condominium building on Silver Oak Terrace. As a result, a PG&E gas line was sheared off as well as the water main. Police assisted the Fire Department in evacuating two condominium buildings and keeping other residents sheltered in place. Walnut Avenue was shut down between Mission Blvd. and Overacker Avenue until the area could be deemed safe. Fire crews were able to shut off the water and PG&E eventually got the gas turned off. The driver was not under the influence - she said her groceries spilled and as she reached for them she inadvertently steered into the building.
