An accident blocking one eastbound lane of U.S. 278 on Hilton Head Island snarled traffic on Tuesday morning.

The accident was in the right lane of the highway just before the intersection with Spanish Wells Road, according to the Beaufort County traffic camera system.

Two vehicles, a pickup truck and a work van, collided around 7 a.m., according to Capt. Bob Bromage, spokesman for the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.

There were no injuries, Bromage said.

Google Maps showed the disruption slowed commuters nearly as far as Burnt Church Road in Bluffton and along the Bluffton Parkway around 8:15 a.m.

The scene of the crash was cleared around 8:30 a.m., but traffic was expected to be heavy for some time.

Information about the cause of the accident was not immediately available.
