COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – First responders in Colleton County say three men were injured Thursday after two large trucks collided at the intersection of Augusta Highway and Pierce Road.
The crash involved a two-piece Cheerwine beverage truck and an appliance delivery truck.
Fire-rescue crews say both trucks suffered heavy damage in the crash and went off each side of the road, striking several trees and spilling about 50 gallons of diesel fuel on the road and into ditches.
The driver of the Cheerwine truck complained of minor injuries but did not want to be transported to the hospital, crews said. The two occupants of the appliance delivery truck both wanted to seek medical attention.
The roadway was blocked for several hours while crews worked to clean up the crash site.
South Carolina Highway Patrol and State Transport Police are investigating the collision.
