MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Traffic cameras show the flow of traffic improving on Highway 17 Bypass at the back gate of the old Air Force Base where a crash had traffic backed up.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Highway 17 Bypass South and Highway 707 and Farrow Parkway.

Officials with the SC Department of Transportation's traffic office say the traffic behind this crash has come to a halt as far Harrelson Boulevard.

It is unknown how many people were involved and how the crash occurred, but for the time being SCDOT officials advise you seek an alternate route if you're planning to travel down southbound Highway 17.

Those SCDOT traffic cameras showed a much lighter traffic flow on southbound Highway 17 around 5:15 p.m.
