Tanker rearended – West Pelzer


West Pelzer Fire Chief David Huff takes notes at the scene of a accident on Main Street in West Pelzer on Sunday evening involving a tanker truck. The big rig was slowing for a car that was stopping because of a pedestrian in the roadway. A Jeep behind the tanker truck struck the tanker in the rear. The Jeep became wedged under the tanker and the tow truck driver had to flatten the two front tires on the Jeep to free it from the rear of the tanker. The woman driving the Jeep was checked by Pelzer EMS but was not transported. No chemicals spilled from the tanker. West Pelzer police officers investigated the accident. (Photo by David Rogers)
