A woman was trapped in her car after a wreck Friday on U.S. 278 near Tanger Outlets One.
Deborah Hanson, 62 of Hilton Head Island, had to be extricated from her 2011 Audi 4 after it was struck on the passenger side by a truck around 12:50 p.m.
Hanson was taken by ambulance to Hilton Head Hospital, where she was treated and expected to be released, a hospital spokeswoman said. The spokesman declined to comment further on Hanson's condition.
The driver of the truck, 48-year-old Charles Roberts of Hilton Head, was not injured, S.C. Highway Patrol spokeswoman Bridget Wyant said.
Never miss a local story.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts.
Roberts was driving eastbound on U.S. 278 when Hanson, driving westbound, tried to turn left into the outlet center. Hanson was T-boned, and the two vehicles slid about 30 feet down the road before stopping, Wyant said.
Roberts and Hanson were charged with disregarding traffic signals, Wyant added.
Bluffton Township Fire District and the Highway Patrol responded to the wreck.
The collision slowed traffic in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 278 for about an hour before being cleared at about 2:30 p.m.
