Injuries Reported in Hartsville, SC, Tanker Accident on Highway 151

Hartsville, SC -- June 7, 2019, injuries were reported following an accident where two commercial vehicles collided along Highway 151.

Investigators responded to the crash scene at around 10:00 a.m. off the intersection of State Highway 151 and West Old Camden Road.

According to initial reports, the collision involved two semi-trucks, both hauling diesel fuel. Following the wreck, fuel leaked, causing an evacuation.

It appears the drivers sustained minor injuries in the crash. It's unclear if anyone else was injured.

No further information surrounding the wreck is currently available.

Commentary

It isn't yet clear what happened here, but simply put any crash involving a commercial truck is sure to be complex. A crash involving two will only be that much more challenging to investigate. Especially considering the fact emergency services had to evacuate the immediate area, something tells me that authorities were spread thin as far as their priorities went. My concern is that the crash scene didn't get the thorough investigation victims need following a truck wreck. As such, it's important that independent investigators look into the crash as soon as possible. Getting assistance requires evidence, and that will require industry experience and state-of-the-art equipment.
