Emergency officials closed all lanes of William Hilton Parkway from Arrow Road to the Sea Pines traffic circle for two hours Wednesday after a vehicle carrying hazardous materials was in a wreck.
No one was injured in the three-vehicle crash, which occurred just before 11:20 a.m. and exposed chemicals that included muriatic acid, bulk dry chlorine, pool shock sticks and gasoline, according to Joheida Fister, fire marshal for the Town of Hilton Head Island Fire & Rescue Division.
Combining some of the materials can cause dangerous reactions.
The area around the vehicles was cordoned off with police tape following the accident. The fire division's hazardous-materials unit coordinated cleanup of the chemicals, which was completed by 1:35 p.m., Fister said.
Never miss a local story.
Additional information on the wreck was not available Wednesday afternoon from the S.C. Highway Patrol or Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
