BRENTWOOD -- A major East County thoroughfare was expected to remain closed into Thursday afternoon following a vehicle crash Wednesday night that knocked down a power pole.

Brentwood Boulevard from Guthrie Lane to Sellers Avenue has been closed since the car crashed into the pole on the road around 8:22 p.m. Wednesday, according to a police advisory. Only minor injuries were reported.

The latest estimate for the reopening of the road is 4 p.m., according to California Highway Patrol Officer Ron Simmons.

The crash caused several power outages in the area, but only a handful of customers were still affected by 8:30 a.m. Thursday, according to a PG&E outage map. PG&E crews were still at the scene.

Drivers were detoured through the area and were urged to use Walnut Boulevard and Concord Avenue to bypass the closure.
