A two vehicle crash Monday afternoon knocked down power lines and forced road closures near Butte College.

Just after 2 p.m. Monday a Chevrolet pickup was rear-ended causing it to crash into a power pole on Clark Road near Adobe Lane. Neither driver was injured in the crash.

Witnesses reported seeing sparks coming from the power pole and power lines, but fire crews were able to arrive on scene before flames could spread to nearby vegetation.

Traffic was diverted away from the accident while PG&E crews worked to clean up the downed lines and fix the power pole.
