Power was knocked out to several thousand homes in three towns, and four people were taken to the hospital, after an accident in Bloomingdale. Around 5pm yesterday afternoon, the driver of a car spun out of control and slammed into a utility pole, snapping it in half and setting the pole on fire.
Electric crews say the accident knocked out several feeder lines, cutting power to homes in Pooler, Bloomingdale and Meldrim.
Witnesses say the driver of the car was speeding when the accident occurred.
Two men and two women were taken to the hospital. One of the women was treated and released, but the three other people were admitted.
Power was restored to most of the homes by 6:30pm.
