Traffic along eastbound Interstate 20 is moving again after several wrecks backed it up for miles between the Grovetown and Harlem exits.
Lanes were temporarily closed while authorities investigated and emergency responders cleared up the vehicles involved in the at least four wrecks that started after 8 a.m. One lane of traffic reopened at about 8:30 a.m., said Columbia County Sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris. Traffic were reopened about 9:30 a.m.
Most of the crashes are rear-enders resulting from rubberneckers driving through the area, and personnel from Martinez-Columbia Fire Rescue and Gold Cross EMS also are working along the stretch.
None of the wrecks caused life-threatening injuries.
