NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Emergency crews have re-opened lanes for two separate accidents involving downed power lines in North Charleston.

NCPD officials say University Boulevard near Fernwood has been re-opened.

There was a single vehicle accident there and traffic had been closed. Police say they will have to close the road again at some point so SCE&G crews can run new wires.

The second incident happened on Leeds Avenue near the detention center.

One lane is now open in each direction.
