A two-vehicle accident on S.C. 170 near the back gate of Sun City Hilton Head at about 1:30 p.m. Thursday sent two people to a local trauma center, according to the Bluffton Township Fire District.
Firefighters had to remove the roof of one vehicle to extricate a driver, Capt. Randy Hunter said.
The road was closed in both directions while firefighters and Beaufort County EMS responded. Hunter did not know the extent of the victims' injuries.
