A construction crew working on Yerba Buena Road Saturday was left without a front-loader after a hole in the street opened up, dropping the vehicle several feet down. The man working the front-loader was not inside when it crashed through the street.
UPDATE: @CaltransDist7 uses combination of K-rail and rock-fall fence – galvanized-steel mesh – to stabilize hillside on Topanga Cyn Blvd (SR-27). it’s open but drive carefully as rains continue. pic.twitter.com/tiigZhrum0— Caltrans District 7 (@CaltransDist7) February 5, 2019
