An accident on one of the Hilton Head Island bridges tied up traffic headed eastbound on U.S. 278 in Bluffton during Tuesday morning’s commute.
The vehicles involved blocked the left lane on the first bridge from Bluffton just before 7:45 a.m.
The crash involved two vehicles, according to Capt. Lee Levesque of the Bluffton Township Fire District.
The vehicles were cleared within a half hour, but traffic remained heavy through the area.
Traffic backed up as far as Tanger Outlets 2 before the lane was cleared.
No injuries were reported, Levesque said.
