EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Nease Road has reopened after being shut down for a few hours Tuesday morning after a school bus struck a power pole.

No students were on board at the time of the wreck. The Effingham County Sheriff's Office said the driver was stuck in the bus for about an hour and a half due to live powerlines down on the bus. Those powerlines have been turned off. 

The driver was extricated from the bus. The extent of the driver's injuries are not yet known.

The downed powerlines did result in a small brush fire, which has since been extinguished. Power was knocked out to some nearby homes. Georgia Power crews are still at the wreck scene.

There is still no word on what caused the crash.
