Posted: Updated:

UPDATE (4:13 p.m.): Jefferson Energy confirms power has been restored to all customers in the three counties.

ORIGINAL STORY: A Saturday afternoon wreck has left people in three counties without power.

Over 150 Jefferson Energy customers in Columbia, McDuffie, and Johnson Counties are without power after a driver crashed her car into a power line at Gordon Hwy and Brad Mary Lake Rd. in Harlem.

Jefferson Energy crews are on the scene working to restore power, but say there is no timetable to when customers' power will be back on.

According to Columbia County Deputies, the driver, 41 year old Tonya Rollins, hit a tree then the power line.

She was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center, where she is in stable condition.

Georgia Regents says the crash was caused by a medical condition.

Some residents may be without phone service as well. Fox 54's Elizabeth Rawlins is on the scene, and says AT&T crews are on the way.
