Downed power lines close Highway 9 at Spring Creek Road

SANTA CRUZ COUNTY, Calif. - Highway 9 at Spring Creek Road is closed as PG&E works to clear downed power lines from a car accident, CHP says.

It's unclear if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.

As of right now, there is no estimated time of when the road will reopen.
