Crews work on damaged power lines just east of Interstate 15 on Railroad Canyon Road. Traffic was backed up for miles.

A western stretch of Railroad Canyon Road has been reduced to one lane each way most of today, creating traffic jams as crews try to repair damaged power lines.

The incident began with a single vehicle traffic collision near Railroad Canyon Road and Canyon Hills Road. According to the Lake Elsinore Police Department, the vehicle struck a telephone pole and came to rest at the bottom of a ravine near the intersection.

The collision caused a transformer to overload and several live power lines were down in the roadway. The driver was uninjured. Edison crews are working on repairing the damaged power lines.

Railroad Canyon Road is reduced to one lane in both directions from Church Street to Grape Street until approximately 6 p.m. The Lake Elsinore Police Department advises drivers to avoid the area until the roads can be fully reopened.
