GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - A crash on a Georgetown County bridge Monday afternoon also caused a fuel spill, police say.

Georgetown Police, Georgetown County Deputies and the Highway Patrol are working to direct traffic on the Highway 17 bridge after the crash, which involved a tractor trailer and a second vehicle.

Georgetown Police said at 3:37 p.m. the tractor trailer has been pulled from the railing at the edge of the bridge.

But the gasoline spill will have to be cleaned up as well.

The crash blocked the northbound lanes shortly before 2 p.m., Georgetown County spokesperson Jackie Broach said.

As of 3:17 p.m., deputies said one southbound lane had been reversed to help move traffic north from the Pawleys Island area.

Minor injuries have been reported, according to Midway Fire Rescue.
