FORT MILL, S.C. (AP) - Motorists on a road near the South Carolina-North Carolina state line have been warned to watch for zombies, hunters and tanks.

The Herald of Rock Hill reported the electronic signs on state Highway 160 near Fort Mill that usually warn of traffic construction or wrecks had a very different message Sunday.

One sign read "Zombies Ahead" and then flashed "Watch for Hunters." On the other side of the road, a sign warned motorists to "Be alert for Tanks."

Department of Transportation resident construction engineer Ken Wilson says a key is needed to get into the control box for the signs and a code is needed to change the wording.

There have been no reports of zombies or tanks.
