Three vehicle accident


Medshore Ambulance Service paramedics along with Pelzer EMS work at the scene of a three vehicle accident on Thursday afternoon on Highway 8 near New Hope church. A pickup truck apparently crossed the center line, side swiped a car, then struck a utility truck head on. At least one person was taken to an area hospital. West Pelzer firefighters assisted EMS and also did traffic control. Traffic was backed up for more than a mile in each direction on Highway 8 until the wreckage was cleared. (Photo by David Rogers)
