LEXINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) - A collision on I-20 East shut down the right lane and caused a traffic jam Wednesday afternoon.

The crash happened near mile marker 59. That’s one mile east of U.S. Highway 1. That lane allows access to Highway 1 and SC-6 only due to construction in the area. The left lane is also separated by a partition allowing traffic to flow down I-20 because of construction.

WIS has been told that the crash involved a large lowboy trailer with two tractors, which will require a large wrecker to move the truck and the trailers.

The lane has now been reopened for travel.

Motorists are urged to use caution in the area.
