One person died and five were injured after a wreck on Interstate 95 in Colleton County early Monday morning.

The wreck happened about 3:05 a.m. in the northbound lanes near the 61 mile marker when the driver of a van carrying six people lost control, according to Lance Cpl. Judd Jones of the S.C. Highway Patrol.

Jones said the vehicle went off the left side of the road, over-corrected and then struck several trees in the median.

One person died and five people were taken to area hospitals with serious injuries, Jones said.
