BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - A crash early Thursday morning on Highway 17A backed up traffic for eastbound drivers on I-26.

The crash, reported at 5:42 a.m., involved injuries, the Department of Public Safety says. But there was no official word on the extent of those injuries.

The crash caused a backup for drivers at exit 199A, which is the southbound Highway 17A exit. SCDOT cameras did not show the actual crash scene but they did show vehicles lined up at the exit.

Many drivers took the northbound exit to Highway 17A and then turned around as an alternate route to bypass the line of cars.
