PARADISE, Calif. -

A strange vehicle accident in Paradise closed the Skyway Thursday morning.

It happened around 10 a.m. on the Skyway near Wagstaff Road.  Paradise Police said a vehicle accident downed a high voltage power line.

A minivan apparently came to rest on top of a guy-wire to a utility pole.  The vehicle was propped up at a 45 degree angle.

Police estimated the road would remain closed for a couple of hours.  PG&E crews responded to repair the line so the road could be reopened.
