A small plane landing at Jim Hamilton - L.B. Owens Airport in Columbia clipped two high-tension power lines Tuesday evening, prompting the closure of the road at the end of the air field and resulting in a small number of customers losing power.
The incident occurred around 6 p.m..
The plane landed safely after the incident and no one was injured, Columbia Fire Department spokesman Brick Lewis said.
Commerce Drive, which runs into Airport Boulevard at the end of the small airport's only runway, was closed for a while so that the downed power lines could be repaired by SCE&G.
Never miss a local story.
As of 7 p.m. power had been restored to all but 20 customers, SCE&G indicated on its power outage map online.
No other details of the incident were available.
