301 closed after Duke truck crashes into river


A section of U.S. Highway 301 at Rhodes Pond is closed to traffic after a Duke Energy service truck crashed into the Black River a little before 5 p.m. Monday.

The wreck closed both directions of travel along the busy highway until crews could clear the site and clean up any potential hazardous spills that may have occurred in the wreck.

The service truck, towing a trailer with a small utility vehicle onboard, crashed near the Rhodes Pond spillway at Sherrill Baggett Road on U.S. 301. No injuries were reported in the wreck.

U.S. 301 is closed between McLellan Road and Rhodes Pond Road.
