U.S. 17 wreck sends more than a dozen to the hospital

An afternoon wreck on U.S. 17 in Beaufort County between a tour bus and a car has sent more than a dozen people to the hospital, according to various media reports.

The Island Packet appeared to be the first to report the wreck here, saying that at least four people were injured.

But Packet reporter Patrick Donohue has since updated that report on Twitter, saying that 16 people were transported to Beaufort Memorial Hospital and one was flown to Savannah.

WTOC also has a report and has some early photos of the wreckage. You can see that here.

The wreck occurred near Big Estate Road. We'll update this as we see more info.
