Traffic was being diverted this morning on Dorchester Road near Leeds Avenue due to downed power lines, officials said.

A vehicle crashed into a pole at the intersection, causing the lines to fall, SCE&G spokeswoman Kim Asbill said.

Crews are at the scene making repairs, according to Asbill said. Some customers may experience brief outages, she said.

Drivers should expect delays in that area.
