The wreck happened in the vicinity of Tiffany Woods, east of Beaufort. The accident is expected to close the highway for some 2 to 3 hours.

Emergency management says a military vehicle pulled off the side of the road because of leaking fuel. An environmental unit from Cherry Point is en route to the scene.
