Part of I-85 in Greenville was shutdown early Thursday morning after a construction crew working on the Gateway Project knocked down a power pole, according to Highway Patrol.
Trooper Joe Hovis said the power pole was somehow knocked down at Exit 51 northbound just before 1 a.m.
Our crew saw a large backup on the interstate and was told I-85 was shutdown around the Exit 51-53 area. Traffic was being diverted.
At least one driver drove over the wire and suffered a minor injury, according to Highway Patrol.
Lines were moved out of the road way.
