A Dodge pickup came to a rest on its side against a utility pole early Tuesday morning on the 100 block of Carlton Road. California Highway Patrol officer Sam Courtney said the male driver was traveling eastbound on Carlton just after 7am at an unsafe seed when he went through a pool of standing water. When his truck hydroplaned, he lost control. The pickup shot off the pavement, rolled onto its side and slammed into the pole. Courtney said no injuries were reported. Emergency officials around the county have been busy with several incidents of power lines down, toppled trees and flooding due to a wet storm from the Gulf of Alaska pounding the Central Coast. Courtney advised motorists to slow down, leave for their destinations earlier and use extra caution in wet weather.
