CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Traffic is moving again normally on I-526 after an accident closed one east bound lane near the Wando Bridge Wednesday morning, Mount Pleasant Police say.

The accident was one mile west of the Long Point Road exit in the eastbound lanes of the interstate just before 10 a.m., according to the SCDOT.

At 10:45 a.m., SCDOT traffic cameras showed a heavy congestion backup roughly a mile away from the accident scene. Live 5 Traffic Tracker indicated an average speed of just 10 m.p.h. in the eastbound lanes between Clements Ferry and Long Point Roads nearly an hour after the crash was reported.

The westbound side was temporarily slowed because EMS responded on that side of the median, police say.
