CORNING, Calif. - Some customers lost power in Corning Friday morning after a big rig hit a power pole.  

It happened at 8:07 a.m. near Olive and River Roads.  The pole was knocked down across Olive Road.

PG&E said about 300 customers originally lost power.  Within two hours crews restored power to all but 14 customers.  Those final customers are expected to be without service until about 3 p.m.

Nearby Richfield Elementary School sent students home and cancelled classes because of the power outage.
