The solo-vehicle crash was reported around 10:30 p.m. on an eastbound Interstate Highway 80 off-ramp at Magazine Street, PG&E spokeswoman Brandi Ehlers said.

No major injuries were reported, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash initially caused 5,115 PG&E customers to lose power, according to Ehlers, who said all but one customer had power restored by about 1:15 a.m.

The lone customer without power needs equipment replaced at their property, and should have power restored by this afternoon, Ehlers said.

Besides the outage from the crash, wet and windy weather overnight has not caused any other outages in the Bay Area, she said.
