A power line with traffic lights attached has fallen across Washington Road in front of Mullins Crossing.

Crews are on the scene working to repair the line. Columbia County deputies are directing traffic. Traffic in both directions on Washington Road was backed up.

According to officials, a crew was working on the line because it was already hanging lower than it should have been. While working on it, a bolt came loose and caused the whole line with streetlights to fall to the ground.
