ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. - Two accidents on I-85 Northbound at mile marker 29 near Welcome Road caused traffic problems Wednesday night.

Troopers with the South Carolina Highway Patrol say a fire truck was responding to a minor crash on I-85 Northbound when it was struck by another vehicle from behind.
    
According to the highway patrol, while responding, the fire truck was legally parked in the number one lane with all emergency lights activated. Troopers say a Honda SUV was traveling northbound on I-85 and rammed into the back of the legally parked fire truck. 

After the crash, the driver of the Honda SUV, Bradley Hartsell from Tennessee, was entrapped. Troopers say mechanical means had to be used to get him out of the vehicle. He was flown by air to Greenville Memorial. There was a female passenger in the SUV, as well. She was transported by ambulance to Greenville Memorial.

In the fire truck, troopers say there were two passengers inside at the time of the crash. Bradley Harp was sitting in the driver's seat and Jimmy Lollis was also in the fire truck. Both were wearing seatbelts and both were transported to AnMed to be checked out, according to the highway patrol.

Our coverage partners at the Independent Mail report Piercetown Fire Department's Rescue Vehicle 13 was the fire truck that was hit.

No fatalities have been reported.

The Highway Patrol reports the outside lane opened just after 9 p.m. Wednesday and all lanes reopened around 9:42 p.m. Wednesday.
