BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The South Carolina Highway Patrol responded to a crash near the Ridgeville exit of I-26 that briefly blocked the entire eastbound side of the interstate.

The crash was reported at 8:23 a.m. two miles east of the Ridgeville exit at mile marker 189. As of just before 8:45 a.m., all eastbound lanes were blocked, but by 8:45 a.m., only the right lane was blocked, according to the SCDOT.

That lane has since reopened.

The crash initially caused a two-mile backup before lanes began reopening, according to Live 5 Traffic Tracker Cameron Bopp.

The crash did not appear to involve injuries, SCDOT said.
