Hundreds of households in west Hinesville are without power Wednesday afternoon after a truck knocked down power poles in Eagle Creek Mobile Home Park in the 300 block of Brantley Drive in Hinesville.

The incident occurred shortly after 10 a.m. when a tractor trailer driving through the park snagged a power line and began dragging down the supporting poles.

One pole with a transformer landed on an unoccupied mobile home while power lines and snapped poles landed in various locations in the park.

No one was injured.

Officials with Georgia Power are working to restore service, but have not said when power would be restored.
