MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - SCE&G crews say they have removed downed power lines from the roadway on Long Point Road.
The downed lines, shut down a portion of Long Point Road near Shipping Lane, causing a backup all the way to the Wando Bridge on I-526 because of trucks waiting to exit the interstate, Mount Pleasant Inspector Chip Googe said
SCE&G crews arrived on the scene shortly before 1 p.m. Monday and were initially waiting for a bucket truck to repair the lines, Googe said.
Police were also on the scene directing traffic to help motorists avoid them.
The cause is believed to be a truck that hit the lines as it passed by, Googe said.
