Columbia, SC (WLTX) - A collision between a truck and a wire triggered a chain of events that sent a woman to the hospital Tuesday morning.

Columbia police say a truck traveling on Highway 277 near Bull Street struck a guy wire (a support cable that runs from the ground to a pole) that had fallen after Monday night's storm.

The truck then pulled the guy wire, causing the attached pole to come crashing down. The pole landed on the windshield of a woman driving a car.

The driver was taken to the hospital with what are described as minor injuries.

Highway 277 at Bull Street was briefly blocked.
