EUGENE, Ore. -- Power has been restored to all customers in Eugene who were affected by a power outage Saturday morning.
The outage affected the Santa Clara-River Road area ahead of north Eugene.
Officials responded to a single vehicle crash around 3 a.m. The vehicle hit a high-power transmission pole that carries a 115-kilovolt power line. There were no injuries reported.
According to EWEB, the crash occurred at Northwest Expressway and Irvington Drive and brought down transmission and feeder lines, forcing the Prairie Road Substation out of service.
Approximately 2,500 customers served by the substation lost power.
EWEB crews dispatched to the scene spent several hours repairing downed lines and other equipment as well as making the area safe.
Crews were able to reroute and backfeed most affected customers from other substations by 8:30 a.m.
The remaining 20 customers affected by the incident were restored at 10 a.m.
