Several agencies responded to the scene of the two-vehicle wreck in the northbound lanes on the bridge over the Black and Pee Dee Rivers in Georgetown.

At one point, all northbound lanes were closed, but emergency crews reversed one southbound lane to help keep traffic flowing.

Authorities said minor injuries were reported in the crash.

Georgetown County officials said during the crash the tractor-trailer released some fuel and crews are working to clean up the spill. The Coast Guard was also been brought in to manage any fuel that may have been released into the water.
