A dump truck hit a power pole in Evans Thursday morning and caused a power outage, said Pam Tucker, EMA director for Columbia County.
The driver of the truck was unloading gravel at the entrance of Marshall Square where the rain had caused muddy areas. The space is set up as a staging area for debris removal crews working to clear tree limbs downed during the ice storm.
Georgia Power restored power shortly after the incident, Tucker said. No injuries were reported.
