The power was out for about 7 hours to about 15 residents near Terrebonne early this morning, as crews work to replace a downed power pole from a car crash. Jeff Beaman with Central Electric Cooperative says there's a lot more to getting the power restored than people think. "When a power pole goes down like that and goes across the road, crews are required to gather flagging services and insure that there is proper safety in place, around the project before they commence with and go forth with replacing that pole." Beaman says the driver who downed the pole is responsible for all costs of having the pole replaced. The accident happened around 3 a.m. this morning. The driver, Devon Olden, 21, and his passenger James Carranza, 21, both of Bend, are unhurt; and alcohol is believed to be a cause. Beaman says replacing a power pole is the lengthiest power outage; because of all the parts that must be in place for the work to be done. Power was restored to residents affected by 10 a.m.
