GRANITEVILLE, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - At least one person was injured this morning in a rollover crash in Graniteville that caused traffic problems on Jefferson Davis Highway.

The crash was reported just after 4 a.m. at Jefferson Davis Highway and Midland Drive on the edge of the Midland Valley Golf Club.

At least one person was thrown out of the vehicle and suffered injuries. That person was taken to a hospital in unknown condition.

Crews were going up and down the roadway using thermal equipment to check for body heat in case another person was out there. They hadn’t found anyone else as of 5 a.m.

Authorities were also trying to learn whether any other vehicles were involved.

The eastbound side of the highway has been shut down, jamming traffic for a time before reopening.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is working at the scene, and a firetruck is there, as well.
