I was doing my daily shot this weekend and was driving through the city of Vernon (in CA). As I headed down a street, I saw a power line blow up and fall to the ground (happened too quick to get a pic). However, I stuck around to get some shots of the police and fire as they showed up. I ended up not getting many shots, because I ended up talking to a friend that worked for the FD that responded to the call. But here is one of the shots I got before anyone else arrived.
That little black box on top of the car is a FLIR unit. You can see the power line laying on the sidewalk just behind the car and hanging down from the power pole to the left.

Interesting location too. Just last week, right down the street from where this shot was taken, a man lost both of his legs while he was cleaning a meat grinder at a packing plant.
