Power is back for thousands in Columbia after a collision Saturday night caused a blackout in the Rosewood area.

SCE&G said a collision involving a power pole at the intersection of Devine Street and Beltline Boulevard caused the blackout. 

At the peak of the power outage, SCE&G reported more than 2,000 outages. All of the power has since been restored.

Saturday night, Columbia police told drivers to avoid the area because of the downed power pole and lines.
