All lanes of US 17 back open after dump truck rolls, spills trash


WINNABOW, NC (WWAY) -- US 17 is back open after an overturned dump truck closed northbound lanes near Winnabow this afternoon.

Troopers say the wet road conditions caused the driver to lose control spilling garbage into the median. Lanes were closed for a while as crews got the truck back on its wheels and cleaned up some of the mess.

Troopers say two people went to the hospital, but everyone is expected to be OK.
