Just before 4 p.m. on Wednesday a tractor trailer clipped a power pole on Spring-King street area near Piggly Wiggly — an action that led to the fall of a power line and loss of power to some 1,300 customers.

In all it took about three hours to get the power back on.

A few briefs abound on this, but the short report at The Post and Courier is better and they also have a photo from the scene
