High winds are suspected of ripping a light standard from its mooring today on Haskell Canyon Road, prompting deputies to divert traffic as the pole leaned precariously.

Shortly after noon, staff at Albertsons Supermarket on Bouquet Canyon Road became aware of the light fixture leaning at the entrance to its parking lot.

A van was used to stop motorists entering the store parking lot at that entrance.

Deputies of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station were called to help re-route traffic around the pole, hanging at about a 15-degree angle over the northbound lanes of Haskell.

A spokeswoman for Albertsons standing by the entrance said she believed the wind pushed the pole over.

No one was reportedly hurt.

A tree almost as tall as the light standard, its branches intertwined around the pole. may have been a factor in the wind's force against the pole.

The black-painted pole appeared to be about 40 feet in height.
