Couple escape unharmed after hitting power lines
PITTSBURG, Calif. (KGO) -- A couple in Pittsburg escaped unharmed after the camper they were driving snagged low-lying power lines. The lines landed right on the camper along West Leland Road and Karen Court.
PG&E credits the couple with doing the right thing by staying inside their camper until help arrived.
"All of a sudden... I got hit. The wire was low, I didn't see it. It hit the top part and it came down on my windshield and I stopped," said Carlos Gonzales, the driver.
They spent about 25 minutes trapped in the camper, until crews shut off the power. Thankfully, they did not try to get out of the camper or they could have been shocked at that point.
