One cited in I-26 three-vehicle wreck
S.C. Highway Patrol is investigating a three-vehicle wreck involving a State Transport Police vehicle that landed one person in the hospital.
The wreck happened shortly before 9 a.m. Friday at the 219 mile marker on Interstate 26, according to Highway Patrol.
A sport utility vehicle driven by a transport officer was stopped with blue lights activated and its siren on while escorting an oversized load onto the interstate, Charleston County sheriff’s Maj. Jim Brady said.
A sedan slowed down while approaching the load, Brady said. That vehicle was then rear-ended by a Jeep, he said.
The impact pushed the sedan into the Transport SUV, Brady said.
Two lanes of traffic were blocked temporarily as the scene was cleared.
Paramedics transported the sedan’s driver to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Brady said.
The Jeep’s driver, Craig Rogers, of Mount Pleasant, was cited for driving too fast for conditions, Brady said.
