Early morning crash, downed power lines close Highway 116

A downed power line and brush fire on Stage Gulch Road/Highway 116 south of Petaluma shut the road down for at least two hours early Thursday morning, authorities said.

The road remained closed at 7 a.m. between Lakeville Highway and Adobe Road, the CHP said.

No one was injured in the 4:48 a.m. crash that sent a vehicle off the road, but the ensuing chaos closed off a critical route between Petaluma and the Sonoma Valley.

There were reports of a power outage in the area, as well, though details were not available.
