AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW) -- Traffic is flowing again along Charleston Highway in Aiken County, following a multi-vehicle crash.

Four people were taken to the hospital after six separate collisions around 9:25 a.m. Tuesday. The accidents involved a UPS truck, an Aiken County work truck and the rest were personal vehicles.

The accidents happened along a foggy stretch of Highway 78 through the Montmorenci community, just east of Aiken city limits.

Charleston Highway between Pine Log Road and Montmorenci Road was shut down for over an hour as crews worked to clean up the the mess.
