UPDATE: Greer Police said the road has been reopened.

GREER, S.C. (WSPA) – Part of Highway 29 will be temporarily shut down Tuesday morning following a crash.

Greer Police Department officials said the driver of a 2010 Toyota Yaris crashed into telephone pole at about 10 a.m. Monday.

Police said the driver was headed southbound on West Wade Hampton Boulevard near the intersection of Poinsett Street when they crossed the centerline and crashed into the pole.

The crash caused two additional poles to fall, which knocked power lines into the roadway, blocking West Wade Hampton Boulevard in both directions, police said.

The driver left the scene before officers arrived at the scene, according to the police department.

Police said the car had been stolen out of Greenville County.

West Wade Hampton Boulevard will be closed between Buncombe Road and West Poinsett Street until mid-morning, police said.
