A man sustained major injuries in a crash on County Road 9 (Wyo Road), east of Road QQ, late Saturday morning.

According to the CHP’s traffic incident webpage and this reporter’s observations at the scene, the accident victim was driving east on Road 9, east of Road QQ, at about 11:15 a.m., when he traveled off the north shoulder and sheered off a power pole.

The driver’s car rolled over and came to rest in a dirt field about 80 feet north of Road 9.

The man was reported to be in the roadway. The traffic incident page stated that he had a major head injury and was screaming.

The car sustained major damage, both to its front and rear ends.

PG&E shut off the power soon after the accident happened, causing many residents around the area to lose their electricity. The power still had not come back on for many people by 10 p.m.

Watch for an update to this incident on Monday.
