CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Crews repaired a utility pole that was struck by a vehicle early Monday morning.

Sgt. Craig DuBose with the Charleston Police Department says a vehicle collided with a utility pole around 12:30 a.m. Monday morning at the intersection of Wesley Drive and Savannah Highway.

DuBose says the driver sustained minor injuries in the crash and was arrested for driving under the influence. The driver’s name has not yet been released.

The crash originally closed all lanes of Savannah Highway between Wesley Road and West Harrison Road and traffic was diverted.

Just after 11 a.m. Monday morning officials tweeted that all lanes on the highway were reopened to traffic and repairs were complete.
