EUGENE, Ore. - A fence post pierced the windshield of a stolen car, but the driver and any passengers got away.

They left an impression: About 180 people lost power around 5:30 Easter morning after a car crashed into a power pole.

Eugene police confirm that the car was reported stolen, and the license plates had been changed.

EWEB reports that it took a crew four hours to replace the pole and restore power to customers.

"The crews did an exceptional job," says Joe Harwood with EWEB.
