HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A collision on Highway 501 near Knotty Branch Road delayed traffic for several hours Wednesday morning.

The accident occurred at the intersection of the two roads at about 8:35 a.m. Wednesday, according to information from the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

A witness at the scene said one vehicle t-boned another, causing a truck to roll over on the highway. A red sedan went off into a ditch off the road, and a woman had to be pulled from the vehicle.

Traffic on Hwy. 501 heading towards the beach was shut down while officials cleared the scene.
