One Dead After Tractor-Trailer Accident in Richland County

One person is dead and two others are injured after a collision Monday.

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - (WLTX) -- One person is dead after a crash involving a tractor-trailer in northern Richland County Monday afternoon.

The collision happened just before noon at Monticello and Camp Ground Roads.

Columbia fire officials say three people were trapped in the vehicles involved and had to be rescued. The conditions of the other two people who were hurt are not known. 

There was a fuel leak as well, which led haz-mat crews to shut down the roadway while they cleaned that spill up.

The circumstances leading to the collision are still under investigation.
