A downed power line on Furys Ferry Road caused a minor wreck this morning and briefly halted traffic.

No one was seriously hurt in the two-vehicle wreck in front of The Church of the Holy Comforter, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Deputy Keith Warner.

The incident occurred at about 10 a.m. Southbound traffic was diverted into the former Augusta Christian elementary campus, and one lane was blocked off on the north side of Furys Ferry Road. Traffic started flowing normally at about 10:45 a.m., after Georgia Power removed the line.
