No one was injured

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A crash that the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office referred to as a possible DUII has led to a utility pole and power lines leaning across the roadway.

In a tweet, CCSO said deputies are investigating a possible single vehicle DUII crash on Stafford Road near Wilsonville. Stafford Rd. is closed between Southwest Shatz Road and Southwest Mountain Road due to the leaning utility pole and power lines across the roadway.
