CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County Coroner’s Office has identified a man who was killed in a multi-vehicle crash on I-26 in North Charleston.

Coroner Bobbi Jo O’Neal said 56-year-old Kenneth Eugene Andrus III from Moncks Corner died on Monday at 7:30 p.m. from injuries he suffered in the crash on the westbound lanes of I-26 near mile marker 205.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol said the crash involved four vehicles which closed westbound lanes for three hours.

The crash occurred at 7:20 p.m. near mile marker 205, the University Boulevard exit, Master Trooper David Jones said.

The driver of the Corvette was killed in the crash, Jones said. The crash remains under investigation.

Troopers also reported a second crash in the westbound lanes involving injuries and a crash on the eastbound lanes about two miles away. No injuries were reported in the eastbound crash, troopers said.
