Traffic on Highway 501 southbound is slowly moving again after a wreck involving a Fair Bluff water tanker shut it down, according to Horry County Public Information Officer Lisa Bourcier.
Two 18 wheeler tow-trucks are working to remove a tanker that overturned on Highway 501 southbound between Gardner Lacy and West Perry Road Saturday afternoon.
The wreck shut down traffic southbound for about half an hour. Northbound traffic is also moving slowly as crews clear the scene.
The tanker was called in for mutual aid to work a fire that broke out Saturday afternoon.
Horry County Police, Horry County Fire Rescue, Conway Fire and SC Highway Patrol were called to the scene.
Bourcier says two people inside the truck were taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center.
