Crews working serious wreck on U.S. Highway 544
Horry County, S.C. (WPDE) —
Horry County Fire Rescue crews are on scene of wreck on U.S. Highway 544 near Big Block Road in Horry County.
It happened just before 11 a.m., according to South Carolina Highway Patrol's real time traffic website.
Horry County Fire Rescue Capt. Mark Nugent says there are two patients who were transported to the hospital with life threatening injuries.
An ABC 15 viewer says lanes were blocked for nearly 30 minutes, but traffic is slowly moving now.
Our crew on scene says the wreck involved a car and truck.
They say the truck ended up on in the ditch on the northbound side of U.S. Highway 544.
Northbound lanes have since been reopened, but only one lane is open on the southbound lanes.
