BRUNSWICK COUNTY, N.C. -- Icy conditions are to blame for a pile up involving two tractor trailers and an SUV in Brunswick County.

The N.C. Highway Patrol says a thin glaze of ice contributed to the accident Thursday morning just outside of Leland. They say drivers took the Highway 17 south exit out of Leland too fast for the conditions. A child in the SUV was injured, but is expected to be OK.

DOT crews treated the icy spots to hopefully make for a smoother commute.
