Woman Crashes Vehicle Into Utility Pole Off Airport Road

There was a partial closure of Airport Road in Redding for an extended time Wednesday after a crash. At around 3:30PM a woman on Airport Road near Fig Tree Lane took her eyes off the road briefly and left the pavement, colliding with a utility pole. She was wearing her seatbelt and was not injured, but the crash brought down power lines. It took PG&E crews several hours to complete repairs, during which time the northbound lane was closed.
