According to Richmond Coun­ty sheriff's Lt. Scott Gay, the accident occurred on the westbound side of the bridge crossing the Savannah River at about 9 p.m.

The westbound lanes of the highway were closed for more than an hour as emergency crews worked to remove the victims during the Riverblast fireworks show. At one point, eastbound lanes were blocked, too, so patients could be transported to MCG.

maybe they need to close the bridge next year before/during fireworks so they won't have people trying to watch & drive! Fireworks were AWESOME this year!!! Hope they weren't drinking & driving.
