Pacific Gas and Electric Power crews worked until early Wednesday morning to replace a power pole that had fallen onto the roadway the day before north of Skellenger Lane, according to PG&E.

The roadway closed at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday when a motorist rolled over after she crashed into the pole, authorities said. PG&E was called. The PG&E workers remained on site until 3:30 a.m. when the Silverado Trail reopened, PG&E spokeswoman Brittany McKannay said.

The driver, Lissette Curiel, 20, of Calistoga, who was driving southbound in a 2010 Mercedes C300 when she crashed, suffered minor injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol. She was transported by American Medical Response ambulance to Queen of the Valley Medical Center, the CHP said.

Northbound traffic was diverted onto Skellenger and Conn Creek Road. Southbound traffic was diverted onto Highway 128 to Conn Creek and Skellenger to the Silverado Trail.

    I hope it wasn't texting related. I have a friend with the exact same story in Fairfield. His daughter 'drifted' off the road and rolled her car, broke her leg and was in a cast for 6 months.
    And, this story has changed since it was initially posted. Originally, it stated, "the car veared off the road for an unknown reason."
    Why was this updated and the sentence removed?
    I hope the driver is OK..
