One driver goes to hospital

Two trucks collided on Highway 166 east of Maricopa Thursday morning, sending both into an oilfield where a power pole was destroyed and oil and steam pipes were damaged.

The occupants of both trucks suffered minor injuries. One driver was transported by ambulance after the 7:30 a.m. crash.

A large crane truck was rear-ended by a set of doubles with end dumps, according to the California Highway Patrol. Both vehicles were in the eastbound lanes when the crash took place.

The impact sent both trucks off the north side of the roadway with the dump truck coming to rest on the pipelines.

A private power pole was destroyed and live wires blocked Highway 166 until PG&E cut power.
