What a thoughtful company


ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) –

Crews cleared the scene of a fiery crash along Interstate 85 northbound after an 18-wheeler wrecked into an overpass at mile marker 30 on Thursday night.

Anderson County fire officials said a UPS truck hit the bridge that crosses over Cherokee Road and caught fire.

The driver and a passenger from Illinois were pulled from the truck and taken by EMS to Greenville Hospital, officials said. Their condition is unknown at this time.

Lance Cpl. Gary Miller said a tire malfunction caused the tractor trailer to run off the side of the road.

UPS released the following statement about the accident on Friday:

At UPS, our concern is for the health and recovery of our two drivers. UPS continues to cooperate with the investigating authorities. We are also in the process of assessing the extent of the damage to packages on the tractor trailer. UPS is contacting customers whose packages were damaged or destroyed and we will make them whole.
