UPDATE (5:40 p.m.) - PG&E says the line was deenergized around 5:15 p.m., leaving about 100 customers without power. Power is expected to be restored by 7 p.m.

ORIGINAL STORY: A trailer leaning on a utility pole blocked part of a Morro Bay street Tuesday afternoon.

PG&E says a truck transfer trailer slid off its rails around 2:15 p.m. near the intersections of Dunes Street and Monterey Avenue, landing on a wire there.

Crews are working to lift the trailer off the wire and may need to deenergize the line while that happens, PG&E said. Around 120 customers would reportedly be affected.

No other information was immediately available.

The area remained blocked off as of 5:30 p.m.
