SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -
The driver of an 18-wheeler that wrecked along southbound Interstate 85 Wednesday morning and backed up traffic for miles told troopers he was trying to avoid hitting a deer.
The tractor-trailer driver said a deer ran out in front of him, so he swerved but then hit a car that was abandoned along the side of the road, according to Lance Cpl. Bill Rhyne with the Highway Patrol.
The truck jackknifed off the side of the highway.
The accident happened near mile marker 63 about 6 a.m. and backed up traffic along I-85 southbound for several miles and hours.
Troopers said no one was injured in the wreck.
