HCFR: 544 bridge over waterway closed after 3 vehicle accident

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Justin Gibbons with Horry County Fire Rescue says the 544 Bridge over the waterway is closed because of a three-vehicle accident that occurred around 6 a.m.

Motorists should seek an alternate route to work, as it is unknown how long the bridge will be closed. Two people were entrapped in vehicles following the crash, Gibbons says. Three people were taken to the hospital, two with serious injuries.

WMBF News will alert you when the bridge is back open to motorists, and when more information on the crash is available.

Many bridges are slick with ice this morning, so take caution before traveling over them.
