RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - An overturned truck has been removed from a busy interstate exchange in Richland County.

The Columbia-Richland Fire Department reports a truck overturned on the Interstate 20 eastbound ramp to Interstate 26 westbound at about 3 p.m. Friday. The ramp remained open and traffic was getting around the wreck.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says the driver was exiting I-20 eastbound onto I-26 westbound when the truck took the curve too fast and overturned, spilling a load of batteries on to the road.

Troopers charged the driver, Alexander Allende from Miami, FL, with driving too fast for conditions.

Nobody was injured.
