TUMALO, OR -- A Bend man was cited for careless driving, following a crash that shut down Highway 20 for several hours Monday morning, between Bend and Sisters. According to the Sheriff's Office, 21-year-old Danny Sherfield and a passenger were eastbound when his pickup left the highway and struck a power pole near Fryrear Road, just before 4 a.m. No injuries were reported. 

 

The pole was sheared off, sending power lines across the roadway and shutting off service to more than 500 Central Electric Cooperative customers. CEC was able to reroute service for most, within the hour. Power was restored for the final 100 customers by 9:20 a.m.
 
Traffic was detoured around the crash site for more than six hours while the power pole was replaced. The highway reopened just before 10:30 a.m.
