Percival Rd. closed after car hits telephone pole, apartment

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Percival Road in Forest Acres was closed Friday morning after a car hit a telephone pole before crashing into an apartment.

Police said the wreck happened shortly before 8:00am on Percival Road, just north of Forest Drive. The female driver of a Lexus told police she swerved to hit another car, crossed the median, clipped the telephone pole and went into the Hunters Way Apartments.

The apartment was unoccupied, and officers said nobody was hurt in the wreck.

Columbia and Forest Acres police, Columbia firefighters, state troopers and SCE&G were all at the scene. Percival is closed while SCE&G replaces the telephone pole.
