DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say Interstate 20 is closed in Darlington County after deputies found possible explosive devices in the car of an Army deserter during a traffic stop.
Deputies say they first found drugs in the car during the stop on I-20 westbound about five miles west of Interstate 95, but a further search found the possible explosives in the truck.
Authorities shut down the interstate in both directions so a bomb squad can get rid of what the deputies discovered.
Deputies say the driver is wanted for leaving Fort Eustis near Newport News, Va., without permission. His name has not been released.
Officials don't know when I-20 will be reopened.
