Just after midnight, a driver traveling on Highway 20 near Smolich Motors lost control of his car, hitting a power pole and shearing it off, and plunging residents into the dark.  Michael Lynn Anderson of Bend apparently lost control of his car while driving on Highway 20 eastbound. Debris from the power pole damaged several cars in the parking lot and live lines were strewn across Highway 20. Pacific Power spokesman Bob Gravely says they have been working through the night. "It affected some overheard lines that are on the pole; it took out power to about 33 people in the area. We’ve had crews working on it through the early morning hours and we hope by 8 a.m. this morning to have the power restored to those customers." Police closed the highway to clean up the damage and power crews are on the scene to repair the pole. They hope to have Highway 20 completely open by 8 a.m. Anderson was taken to St. Charles with non-life threatening injuries. He is charged with DUII and Criminal Mischief. The investigation is continuing.
