PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A crash at NE 65th and Halsey knocked out power to around 1,300 Pacific Power customers on Friday morning.

The crash broke an entire power pole in half and crews responded immediately to fix the pole.

A worker on scene told KOIN 6 that the driver who crashed into the pole was reportedly arguing with his wife when they crashed. Neither were seriously injured.

Power has since been restored.
