— Five people, including two minors, were taken to the hospital Monday after their SUV ran off the road along I-20 westbound and overturned.

The driver, Franzetta Jones, 45, of Decatur, Ala., was cited with driving too fast for conditions and for the two minors not wearing seat belts, said Sr. Trooper Bridget Wyant with the S.C. Highway Patrol.

One minor was ejected from the vehicle in the accident.

The accident occurred around 3:15 p.m. near mile marker 51 westbound on I-20, delaying traffic until about 5:30 p.m., when all lanes reopened.

The highway patrol is still investigating the crash.
