An evacuation was ordered within a half-mile of the scene, deputies said. They said people outside of that perimeter were also notified of the situation. They said the evacuation was lifted by 7:30 p.m.
Motorists were asked to use Interstate 26 to get around the area.
Investigators said it appears the truck ran onto the shoulder of the road, which had been softened by the rain, and overturned. The driver of the truck was taken to Newberry County Hospital for treatment.
