Five Vehicle Accident On South Carolina Interstate Involving Three Tractor Trailers Kills One, Injures Four

In a major tractor-trailer accident one person was left dead, while four others suffered serious injuries. Apart from the three tractor-trailers in the Interstate 26 collision, there was a minivan and a car involved in the midmorning crash.

The incident is still under investigation by South Carolina State Troopers to determine exactly what happened to cause the devastating wreck. What is known is that one of three trucks jack-knifed and the other two had overturned.

In any major multi-vehicle accident it is certain there will be subsequent traffic build up. The westbound lanes of Interstate 26 in Calhoun County were closed for several hours resulting in mandatory detours for South Carolina travelers.

Charleston truck accident attorneys would like to remind South Carolina drivers to maintain a heightened sense of awareness of 18-wheelers and other traffic when traveling on our state’s interstates and highways this holiday season. Be mindful of surrounding cars, especially tractor-trailers, as they pose a lethal threat to drivers and passengers if collided with, as it is not always possible for truck drivers to see other traffic from their elevated position.
