An automobile accident around 9:00 am this morning has resulted in two broken poles on Hill City Road near Hill Circle in Pickens County. Currently 235 members are without power. Areas affected are Mullinax Road, Hill Circle, Gibson Trail and others. This is the third time within the past 1 1/2 weeks that a vehicle has struck the same pole, resulting in a loss of power.
Crews are working now to replace the poles. We appreciate the patience of our members and all power will be restored just as soon as is safely possible.
