UPDATE: All lanes have reopened.
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A Tuesday morning crash involving a tractor-trailer blocked all lanes on I-26 eastbound in North Charleston.
The crash happened around 5:35 a.m. near mile marker 209.
This is two miles west of the Ashley Phosphate Road/US-52 connector interchange.
Lance Corporal Nick Pye said a tractor-trailer struck an unoccupied, disabled vehicle on the side of the interstate. Both vehicles went off the road and caught on fire.
SCDOT cameras showed a tractor-trailer flipped on its side as crews worked the scene.
The crash shut down lanes, causing a miles-long backup before one lane reopened to traffic.
The operator of the truck was injured and taken to Trident Hospital.
