BEND, OR -- About 1400 households in Bend got their power knocked out last night around 7:45, when a pickup truck hit a power pole just north of the Murphy Road / Brookswood Boulevard round-about. The impact caused live wires to fall to the ground setting grass and a fence on fire.  As neighbors worked to put the fires out, the suspect took off in his truck. A neighbor followed it to Deschutes River Woods, where authorities arrested 32-year-old Zachary Abbott. It was determined alcohol was a primary factor in the crash.
