NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A deadly crash involving a motorcycle caused significant delays on I-26 eastbound during the Thursday morning rush hour.
The crash happened just before 6:00 a.m. on I-26 near Aviation Avenue, according to Lance Cpl. Nick Pye with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
A Ford pick-up truck and a Yamaha motorcycle were both headed east on I-26 when both motorists collided.
