SANTA CLARITA – A portion of Soledad Canyon Road near Valley Center Drive is closed after a driver crashed into a power pole during an early morning accident today. Santa Clarita city crews have rerouted Soledad Canyon Road’s westbound traffic onto eastbound lanes. Eastbound traffic has been diverted onto Golden Triangle Road. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies closed the road near the accident site because power lines were down. Southern California Edison estimates the pole and lines might not be repaired until Saturday, according to police. The power pole is the same one that was hit several weeks ago. That accident also caused a portion of Soledad Canyon Road to be closed.
