Traffic is moving again on eastbound Interstate 26 in Calhoun County after it was at a standstill for more than an hour Tuesday morning.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says the crash occurred at about 4 a.m. at mile marker 136, near the SC 6 exit for St. Matthews near the Orangeburg County line. All eastbound lanes were blocked for more than an hour. All lanes are now open.
