Northbound I-85 Backed Up In Anderson County

A morning wreck has traffic backed up for miles on northbound Interstate 85 in Anderson County. State troopers say only one lane of traffic is open northbound, after a tractor trailer overturned at exit 19 just before 9:30 this morning. Troopers say it tipped trying to get on the interstate and fell in front of a van. They say the van swerved to avoid a crash and ended up hitting the retaining wall and guard rail.
Emergency crews took drivers of both vehicles to AnMed Health Center in Anderson, according to troopers.
They say the clean-up, and backups, will last into the afternoon.Source
