CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

The power is back on for more than 3,500 SCE&G customers after a car crashed into a utility pole. 

SCE&G confirms an outage on Folly Beach was caused by a car crashing into a utility pole on Folly Road, near Harris Teeter. The incident happened around 2:40 a.m. 

Lanes were closed on Folly Road at Needlegrass as authorities responded. According to the Charleston Police Department, a driver approaching the intersection lost control of his vehicle and skidded into the pole before hitting a wooden fence and flipping over. 

Power was restored shortly after 5:30 a.m. after crews replaced the pole.
