WAGENER, S.C. (WJBF) – One woman has died after an accident in Wagener caused a power pole to fall on her.

The accident happened shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday

Aiken County Coroner Darryl M. Ables tells us that 31-year-old Jeunelle Robinson, an employee at Wagener-Salley High School, was walking south on Main Street when a northbound tractor-trailer struck multiple overhead power lines, causing a utility pole to fall and hit Robinson.

Robinson was transported to Aiken ER, then flown by helicopter to Augusta University. She was later pronounced dead at AUMC by the Aiken County Coroner’s Office. Wagener-Salley High School wrote on their main school web page that Robinson died Wednesday evening surrounded by her family.

“Ms. Robinson,” according to Wagener-Salley High School, was in her second year teaching social studies at Wagener-Salley High School.

“Genuine and sweet to everyone she encountered, her time here at our school and on this earth feels much too short,” wrote the school.

Due to the tragic events, the school cancelled all activities for the remainder of this week, including Thursday night’s volleyball game, Open House, and Friday’s home football game.

The location where the powerlines were brought down on a pedestrian is a business area with a shopfront on each corner, as well as housing one government office. On the Southwest corner, there is an Enmarket Gas Station and Nona and Pops Coffeeshop next door. To the Southeast, there is the Wagener Magistrate’s Office and Security Federal Bank. To the Northeast, there is Bailey’s Tire Service, and to the Northwest a row of businesses including Wagener Drug and the Little Bake Shoppe and Deli.

Additional counselors will be on campus at Wagener-Salley High School Thursday and in the following days to assist in the grieving process and to support students, teachers, staff, and families.

The Coroner’s Office and South Carolina Highway Patrol are currently investigating the incident.
