BEND, OR -- A 15-year-old unlicensed driver is blamed for a crash east of Bend that caused an internet outage, just before noon, Tuesday. According to the Sheriff’s Office, the girl was northbound on Ward Road when the car in front of her stopped to turn left on to Bear Creek. The teen was reportedly following too close and tried to swerve to the left. Her pickup clipped the back of the stopped car before crashing into a power pole. 

 

Century Link and Pacific Power had to remove the pole to prevent it from falling, and to allow crews to remove the truck. No injuries were reported. The teen, who had three other underage passengers, was cited for not having a license and following too close.
