The morning commute has been increasingly hectic over the past few weeks. On April 8th, 2010 three wrecks involving 10 cars on I-26 had people arriving to work 2-3 hours late. The wrecks all occurred around 7:40 a.m. within minutes of one another near the Eagle Drive overpass, right before the Aviation Avenue exit.
No one was seriously injured, but a North Charleston Fire Department Captain was trapped in his vehicle and later rescued by his fellow firefighters. He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at MUSC.
The accidents caused traffic to backup over 6 miles past the U.S. Highway 78 exit. Two drivers who were involved in the accidents were ticketed for driving too fast for conditions.
