An accident involving a truck that was towing a storage unit is causing heavy congestion in I-526 and backing up into West Ashley.

Initially, one eastbound lane of I-526 was blocked before the Westmoreland bridges after the truck and storage unit ran off the road. That accident was reported at around 12:40 p.m.

Backups and heavy congestion are being reported on Paul Cantrell Boulevard.

The accident was reported cleared by the SCDOT at 1:41 p.m.

However, at 1:44 p.m. heavy congestion was being reported on I-526 between the Cantrell Boulevard exit and the Leeds Avenue exit. 

Use caution in this area.
