Meeting Street exit off I-26 closed after truck hit pole

The North Meeting Street exit off Interstate 26 remains closed after a truck took out a utility pole earlier today.

The exit will remain closed until later this afternoon while crews repair the damage, according to S.C. Electric & Gas.

The accident was reported around 10 a.m. Photos from the scene showed a banged-up dark pickup truck near the damaged pole, which left a wire across the exit.

About 1,100 customers lost power, which has been restored, according to SC&G.
