LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) -

One of the main thoroughfares in the town of Lexington was blocked while electric crews work to replace utility poles that were knocked down when a tractor-trailer hit them Wednesday afternoon.

Police say the collision happened on East Main Street near Efird St. around 1:30 p.m.

East Main Street was closed from North Lake Drive and Harmon Street.

In addition to the traffic bottleneck, there were some power outages in the area.

SCE&G had to replace at least one utility pole and restore power to the area. Time Warner and Windstream are also working to repair their lines.

You are urged to avoid the area if possible.
