Over the weekend, part of Interstate 85 was closed after a tractor-trailer accident.

Occurring in upstate South Carolina, a sleepy driver lost control of her vehicle, went off the side of the road, and veered back onto the highway. An oncoming tractor-trailer driver swerved to miss the car but still struck the car and then hit a tree.

The driver of the tractor-trailer was killed in the accident while the other driver was not seriously injured.
