A multi-car crash on Interstate 95 on Saturday, June 18 injured six people.

The crash occurred near the 64-mile marker at about 5:15 p.m. when several vehicles collided, sending two cars into the wooded median. One vehicle overturned.

Two people were taken to the Trauma Center at Trident Medical Center in North Charleston. Two other people were transported to Colleton Medical Center and two patients were treated at the scene.

“Crews and wrecker companies cleared debris from the roadway and removed the vehicles to open one lane after nearly 45 minutes,” said Colleton County Fire-Rescue Chief Barry McRoy.

Both lanes were closed for nearly two hours and traffic backed up for more than 10 miles, said McRoy.

The S.C. Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
