North Charleston police are investigating after a truck left the roadway on Rivers Avenue.

Shortly before 8 p.m. a vehicle left the road and struck the Raising Canes sign on Rivers Ave, police say.

Eastbound traffic lanes were blocked for a moment, but they opened a short time later.

The driver of the vehicle was transported and is in stable condition, police say.

North Charleston police, EMS and firefighters responded to the scene.
