JOHNS ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Hwy 17 at Main Road has been reopened after crews worked for hours to remove an 18-wheeler from a ditch.
Officials say a car turned in front of the truck, which then swerved into a ditch in front of a nearby Burger King around 3 a.m.
It took at least three tow trucks to get the semi, half-filled with auto parts, out of mud and water.
The roadway was reopened around 8:30 a.m.
Motorists were being rerouted to Old Charleston Road as crews remained on scene.
