Two Pickup Trucks & Boat Collide On Highway 33

Traffic was snarled Thursday afternoon when two pickup trucks collided on Highway 33, one of those pulling a boat.

The crash happened between Greenville and Grimesland near the intersection of Alvin Road around 3:15 p.m.

The pickup truck pulling the boat landed on its side, while the other one ended up on its top. It doesn't appear the boat was damaged.

The Highway Patrol says a red F350 was heading west when it made a left turn in front of a white pickup pulling the boat.

Trooper Jonathan Lee says 24-year-old Thaddeus Crafford of Ayden was charged with failure to yield to oncoming traffic. The driver of the other truck, Danny Hardy of Grimesland, and a passenger in Crafford's vehicle were injured.

    Just thought I would let everyone know who was worried about the boat, that the boat is fine and my DAD who was driving the truck that was pulling the BOAT is doing fine as well. Thanks for the CONCERN.

      Glad your Dad is fine but I think most post are being sarcastic about the boat because of the way WITN handled the article like it was more important than the people involved.
