Pickup truck hits pole then NE Portland apartment building

Posted: Updated:

Police said a driver fell asleep behind the wheel Wednesday morning and crashed into a power pole then an apartment building in northeast Portland.

All lanes of Northeast Glisan Street were closed just before 6 a.m. between Northeast 122nd Avenue and Northeast 125th Avenue because of the crash, which happened after 5 a.m.

Officers said a driver of a pickup truck fell asleep and drifted off Northeast Glisan Street. The Toyota Tundra drove into a power pole and crashed into a parked pickup truck and then hit some stairs at the Fairway Apartments, going into a wall a bit.

No injuries were reported in the crash.

Portland General Electric responded to the scene to address the hit power pole. The pole repair was expected to take several hours, with lanes closed while that was done. 

Police said the driver will likely not face any charges.
