A car crashed on the 800 block of Monte Diablo Avenue into a tree, a fire hydrant, a city light pole and a power pole Friday afternoon sending live wires onto several residences, according to San Mateo police.
At approximately 2:20 p.m., the car was traveling east on Monte Diablo Avenue near the King Center when it drove off the road and onto the south sidewalk. No one was injured and drugs or alcohol were not factors in the crash, according to police.
The area where the lines were downed was quickly evacuated and residents were told to shelter in place. King Center staff assisted in keeping children and adults there in place, according to police.
San Mateo police, fire, public works and parks and recreation staff created a unified command post with Cal Water and Pacific Gas and Electric, according to police.
