Minor wreck backs up morning traffic on Goshen Rd

Posted: Updated:

A minor wreck caused traffic to back up Thursday morning on Goshen Road in Effingham County.

It happened during the morning commute. Police say it was a minor fender-bender between two vehicles and no injuries were involved.

The Georgia State Patrol, Rincon Fire and Effingham County deputies all responded to the crash and say whenever traffic is diverted from Hwy 21 due to a crash or road work, drivers will take the back roads to avoid 21, overwhelming roads like Goshen. Deputies believe this was the case Thursday morning as a 2-vehicle crash shut down one southbound lane of Hwy 21 in Port Wentworth shortly before the crash on Goshen Rd. No injuries were reported in that crash either.

Both wrecks have since been cleared. There is no word if any charges will be filed in either crash.
