A crash blocked all southbound lanes of I-95 around 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning. One lane of the interstate was re-opened around 10 a.m., but traffic was backed up to Exit 8 in Hardeeville.

Traffic was backed up late Tuesday morning on I-95 South in Hardeeville after a four-vehicle crash occurred around 9:20 a.m. about a mile away from Exit 5, according to an alert from S.C. Department of Transportation.

All southbound lanes were closed on that section of the interstate for at least half an hour, but were reopened by 10:45 a.m., Hardeeville Police Chief Sam Woodward said.

Four people were transported to two local hospitals with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, Woodward said.

He said the crash seemed to occur when some cars were trying to merge off the interstate while others were trying to merge onto it.
