The post says the tractor-trailer went off the interstate bridge and landed about 60 feet below. A technical rope rescue was used to get the driver out.

SCHP confirmed the driver was taken to the hospital.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says the tractor trailer wreck caused a hazmat spill. The cleanup is still underway.

It appears the tractor trailer was hauling beer.
