Traffic on Interstate 20 continues to be affected by an early-morning crash involving multiple tractor-trailers.

A spokesperson for the highway patrol says cleanup is likely to last though lunchtime.

The collision happened in the westbound lanes on the Broad River Bridge around 5 a.m.

Columbia Fire Department spokesperson Brick Lewis one person was trapped and another tractor-trailer was leaking diesel fuel shortly after the crash.

Three people were taken to the hospital. The extent of their injuries is unclear.

Motorists are being urged to use caution in the area and to take an alternate route until the wreck has been cleared.
