A wreck between a car and tanker truck hauling gasoline tied up traffic on S.C. 170 for about five hours Monday on S.C. 170 in Bluffton.
The driver of a PT Cruiser leaving the Mill Creek subdivision onto S.C. 170 at Gibbet Road hit the rear driver-side axle of a Kenan Transport LLC tanker truck at about 3:40 p.m., according to Sgt. Joseph Babkiewicz of the Bluffton Police Department.
The driver, Jonathon Werner, and a passenger in his vehicle were transported to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah with minor injuries, Babkiewicz said.
The tanker truck was carrying gasoline and because of the damage had to be drained. Additional tankers were called to the scene, and no gasoline leaked from the tanker, Babkiewicz said.
Traffic was rerouted for about five hours while the tanker was drained. The driver of the PT Cruiser was cited.
