I-126 Reopens After Big Rig Crash

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Interstate 126 in Columbia has reopened, hours after the eastbound lanes were closed when a big rig overturned. 

The collision happened around 11 a.m. in the eastbound lanes right where the road turns into Elmwood Avenue.  Columbia fire officials say the driver was entrapped, and was removed and taken to the hospital.

Columbia Police later said the drive was o.k.

Traffic had to be shutdown in that location, and drivers were diverted onto Huger Street.

Police have not yet said what they believe led up to the crash.
