On Kings Bridge Road outside of Hollonville, a power pole broke Wednesday morning around 9:30 a.m., tangling a truck in live wires. The cement truck was traveling to what appeared to be the installation of a building’s foundation when the live power lines fell on top of the truck, keeping it from moving forward or from turning to mix the cement. The driver had to remain inside the truck for safety reasons while Georgia Power was notified to disconnect power to the lines. Nearby, CrossPointe Christian Academy and many others were without power. Students at CCA will be out of school for summer on Friday, but administrators were discussing letting them leave early because of the power outage.
