CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A pair of crashes slowed traffic on I-26 in both directions Monday afternoon.

A crash reported at 1:18 p.m. in the westbound side of I-26 just past Highway 17 at Romney Street briefly closed all lanes. Shortly after 1:30 p.m., the left lane reopened to traffic.

That crash does involve injuries, Charleston County dispatchers say.

An earlier crash, reported at 12:57 p.m. on I-26 eastbound near Cosgrove Avenue blocked two left lanes. Footage from SCDOT traffic cams appears to show one car partially on top of another.

No injuries have been reported in that crash.
