CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A truckload of mud and rocks made for a messy night along I-526 in West Ashley late Thursday night.

Officials say a truck lost its load near the Westmoreland Bridge around 11 p.m. Thursday.

A driver, who did not want to be identified, said "cars just started swerving. I hit big old boulder rocks because I couldn't see. And then I jumped our of my car."

Dispatchers said several vehicles were damaged by the debris. Many of the cars had to be hauled away by tow trucks.

The mess backed up traffic for hours.

There's been no word yet what truck lost the load of debris.
