COLD SPRING - A crash caused a power outage on Saturday morning.  The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says it happened just after 8:00 a.m. on County Road 83 in Wakefield Township.

Sixty-two-year-old David Minnerath of Cold Spring says he was traveling east when a vehicle driven by 67-year-old Harvey Eggert of Cold Spring turned in front of him.  Minnerath swerved to avoid hitting Eggert's vehicle and hit the power pole.

A large number of homes and businesses in that area lost power.

Both drivers refused to go to the hospital.
