Hit-and-run driver sought in power pole crash
by Bend Weekly News Sources

BEND, Ore. – Deputies are seeking the driver of a vehicle that caused an area-wide power outage when it crossed the centerline and struck a power pole in Terrebonne early this morning. The man fled on foot, and has yet to be identified.

According to Deschutes County Sheriff’s Sgt. Chad Davis, deputies were dispatched to the 9600 block of NW 27th Street in Terrebonne when it was reported that a loud noise was heard and a power outage occurred about 2 a.m., March 6.

A green 1992 Ford Taurus had struck the Pacific Power Company (PPC) power pole and sheered it off at ground level, causing an outage, he said. PPC personnel were called to the scene for repairs.

At least one man wearing a large “puffy” jacket left the scene on foot and went to a nearby residence to ask to use the phone.  He was refused, and again left on foot, Davis said.

Deputies searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect, and are still attempting to determine his identity. The sergeant asks anyone with information to call the Sheriff’s Office at 541.693.6911.
