Crash involving semi stuck in median on I-85 (FOX Carolina/ March 13, 2018)

Troopers said a crash involving a tractor trailer struck in the median along I-85 in Spartanburg County caused slowdowns on both sides of the interstate Tuesday morning.

Troopers said the crash happened on I-85 North around mile marker 80 just before 6 a.m.

A tractor trailer ran off the road and into the median, where troopers said the big rig got stuck.

No one was hurt but the left lane on the northbound side was blocked for several hours while a tow truck responded and worked to free the truck.

Troopers said traffic was also backed up on the southbound side of the interstate.
