A car ran off the roadway and struck a power pole supporting three large transformers, sending them to the ground. West Pelzer firefighters detoured traffic and Medshore transported the driver to the hospital. According to the Duke Energy outage board, more than two thousand customers were without power following the accident. (Photo by David Rogers)
