WATSONVILLE - Lakeview Road was closed near Highway 129 Monday morning after a minivan struck a pole about 5:50 a.m., the California Highway Patrol said.

Lakeview remained closed at 10:45 a.m. as utility workers fixed the pole, said CHP officer Sarah Jackson.

The driver was unhurt, but the pole was hanging over Lakeview Road and necessitated the road closure while the PG&E pole was up righted, officer Sarah Jackson said.

The pole was sheered at its base, Jackson said. PG&E workers arrived at 7:15 a.m.

The closures initially were at Highway 129 at Lakeview Road and at Lakeview and College Road, a CHP dispatcher said.
