WAGENER, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - A day after a tractor-trailer crash spilled chickens all over Sand Dam Road, a wreck this morning dumped nails and screws across the pavement.

Today’s crash was reported at 8:11 a.m. on Sand Dam Road at Randy Wayne Lane, just north of Wagener, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol. The agency said the crash involved a sport utility vehicle and a pickup.

Injuries were reported in the rollover crash, according to the patrol.

Crews said close to 8:30 a.m. that the road couldn’t be reopened until someone could sweep up all the nails and screws that spilled.

The accident came a day after a tractor-trailer carrying chickens was involved in a traffic accident a few miles north, sending the birds and their cages all over the roadway. No injuries were reported in that wreck around 7:29 a.m. in the area of Sand Dam and Cline Taylor roads. The road was shut down for a time so that mess could be cleaned up.
