A tractor trailer and a moped: Eyewitnesses say the two collided on Highway 17 in the Beaufort County town of Washington Tuesday, just a couple of blocks down from King Chicken. It happened just after three in the afternoon. The driver of the moped was taken away in an ambulance, but there's no word on a condition. The highway was closed for a short time.
