Electricity has been restored to 350 Georgia customers in Jones County after a tractor-trailer carrying frozen chickens bound for Savannah hit a power pole off Gray Highway near Creekside Drive.
The power came back on at about 9:45 a.m., said Georgia Power spokesman Jeff Wilson.
Marco Carswell, the owner of the rig, said driver Brent Gooden was parking on the side of the road when the rig rolled on the muddy shoulder, slid on its side down an embankment, and came to rest on the pole at about 6:15 a.m. about four miles into Jones County.
Gooden was not hurt in the incident but northbound traffic detoured in the southbound lanes on Ga. 11 so crews could lift the rig. The road reopened at about noon.
