Car Accident Causes Traffic Delay

BRUNSWICK COUNTY -- A accident on Highway 74-76 Monday morning backed up traffic through three counties.

An S-U-V, and an 18-wheeler collided in Brunswick County around 7:00 a.m.

The accident jammed traffic all the way into Bladen County.

Troopers say the driver of the S-U-V hit the truck in the fuel tank, causing it to slide off the road, and into a ditch.

They estimate about 20 gallons fuel spilled onto the highway.

No one was hurt in the accident.
