A 25-year-old Bend man was killed Thursday night after crashing his SUV into a power pole on U.S. Highway 20 near Fryrear Road, between Sisters and Bend.
Oregon State Police responded to the single-vehicle crash at about 8 p.m. and discovered that Tyler Wright was driving a black 2001 Nissan Pathfinder east on the highway when he crossed over the oncoming lane and crashed into a power pole, causing the SUV to roll on its top.
Wright was pronounced dead at the scene.
Highway 20 was closed for about 5 hours. Power continued to be out for the local residents early Friday morning from the damaged power pole.
