Three vehicles were involved in an accident at the intersection of Little Dude Avenue and Gold Mine Highway (U.S. 601), just outside of Kershaw, at about 3 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9. The accident involved a logging truck, an SUV and a pick-up truck.

The woman driving the SUV was entrapped for a short time, but rescue workers were able to free her. She was airlifted from the scene.

S.C. Highway Patrol is investigating the scene and rescue crews are clearing up at this time.

This portion of Gold Mine Highway will remained closed for the next several hours until clean-up is completed.

The logging truck is overturned and spilling its load on the shoulder of the road. The pick-up truck is in a nearby ravine. The SUV is in the middle of the road, completely destroyed.
