Car Crash into Electrical Pole Causes Hundreds to Lose Power in Conway

A car crash in Conway last night resulted in damage to electrical poles and power outages in the area. The incident occurred along Four Mile Road. The street between Highway 501 and Oak Street is closed until further notice with drivers asked to avoid the area. It’s unclear at this time what led the driver to collide with the electrical poles, but it caused property damage and over 700 Horry Electric Cooperative customers to lose power. The driver’s condition is also unknown. The power has since been restored.
