REDMOND, OR -- A Tesla crashed into a power pole on SW Helmholtz Way, south of Redmond Sunday night. The crash near the intersection with SW Canal Blvd shut down traffic in the area, after multipl power lines came down.
When a State Trooper first arrived at the scene, just before 8 p.m., the driver was trapped in the car, which was on its top. Redmond firefighters began efforts to get the driver out and an air ambulance was dispatched.
Central Electric Cooperative told first responders the wires across the road should be considered active and dangerous.
The road reopened before 4 a.m. There is no word on the condition of the driver.
