ANDERSON CO., S.C. (WSPA) – A truck hit the Anderson Highway bridge, known as the U.S. 29 connector, Wednesday afternoon.

Northbound U.S. 29 at the bridge is closed.

The bridge from Williamston to U.S. 29 is closed indefinitely.

The truck was pulling an empty container that was too high for the bridge, according to the S.C. Highway Patrol.

Troopers say no one was hurt after the container was knocked off the truck.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation posted on Facebook that engineers will inspect the damage Thursday morning. In the meantime, a detour is in place.
