SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - An early-morning reconstruction of a Sunday crash shut down a portion of a Summerville street for an hour and a half.

Summerville dispatchers said a two-block stretch of North Main Street, from the 700 block to Highway 78, was blocked off at approximately 3:20 a.m. It reopened shortly before 5 a.m.

Lt. Chris Hirsch said the street was closed so that the police department’s traffic division could reconstruct a car accident.

The crash, which happened at approximately 10:14 p.m. Sunday, closed all northbound lanes of North Main Street as well as one southbound lane.
