FLORENCE, S.C. -- Two truck drivers escaped injury Friday evening in a crash on US 76 in front of the entrance to the Francis Marion University athletic fields.

Windy Hill Firefighters and troopers with the South Carolina Highway Patrol responded to the crash about 5:30 p.m. after one truck collided with the back of a second truck’s trailer.

Neither truck was carrying hazardous cargo, a Windy Hill officer said, though there was a fluids spill from the second truck’s engine and transmission.

The crash backed up traffic while firefighters and recovery crews worked to remove the damaged trucks.
