A series of car wrecks on Interstate 20 slowed traffic for more than an hour Wednesday afternoon.

Fifteen vehicles were involved in six minor collisions, said South Carolina Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Judd Jones. No serious injuries were reported.

The first wreck occurred about 5:30 p.m. in the westbound lanes near mile 3. As traffic slowed because of the accident, five more collisions occurred up to mile 5, Jones said.

The wrecks were cleared after 75 minutes.

Rubberneckers... I just don't

Rubberneckers... I just don't get it. Your task is to drive, not to worry about things outside of your driving.

All it takes to stall traffic is a blue light in the emergency lane. Again, I just don't get it. It is the same incompetent drivers who are tapping their brakes for a bird flying over the road.
