NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The South Carolina Highway Patrol said Tuesday morning a crash blocked one eastbound lane of I-26.

The crash, reported at approximately 7:11 a.m., closed the left eastbound lane of I-26 near mile marker 204, one mile west of the University Boulevard exit.

The lane reopened at around 8 a.m.

It did not appear to involve injuries, but there was a three-mile backup behind the crash as of just after 7:30 a.m.

Live 5 Traffic Tracker Cameron Bopp said the slowdown increased the drive time from Summerville to downtown Charleston to about 43 minutes as of 7:45 a.m. before the lane reopened.
