Lanes were reopened to daily and pre-Thanksgiving traffic about 30 minutes after a two-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon on U.S. 278 in Bluffton.
The crash occurred about 2:45 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Fording Island Road near Simmonsville Road, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol’s real-time traffic information.
Both vehicles were towed by about 3:15 p.m., and emergency vehicles were gone by 3:20 p.m., Beaufort County traffic cameras showed. The right eastbound lane of U.S. 278 was temporarily blocked by a fire truck just before Simmonsville Road.
