MOJAVE, Calif. – An out of control wind turbine has caused a road closure in Mojave.

California Highway Patrol crews have shut down Oak Creek Rd on Friday afternoon after they discovered that the wind turbines were having some technical problems.

Officials noticed it on Oak Creek Road, located about five miles west of the city of Mojave just before 10 a.m. and are working to fix the problem.

The roadway is shut down as a precaution while crews work to fix the turbines.

An official for the company says the public isn’t in danger and they hope to have the problem fixed soon.
