SCHP: Unsecured trailer causes I-26 fire

Posted: Updated:

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A trailer that came unhitched from a pickup truck caused a collision that led to a fire on Interstate 26 on Monday afternoon, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

Troopers say the trailer came unhooked from Robert Thomas' Chevy pickup truck Monday afternoon, hitting an SUV, then a media before careening across the interstate.

A van also traveling westbound swerved to miss the unhinged trailer, overturned and caught fire, according to Troopers. The driver of the van was able to escape without injury, officials said.

Thomas was cited with a towing violation.
