SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A segment of eastbound Interstate 26 in South Carolina is closed as crews work to repair damage left by a fiery crash that left three people dead.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol said Sunday all eastbound traffic is being diverted around the crash site near the intersection with Interstate 85. Highway Patrol spokeswoman Hannah Wimberly says westbound traffic on I-26 reopened about noon Sunday.

The crash early Saturday involved a tanker truck carrying diesel fuel or gasoline, along with a sport-utility vehicle and pickup.

The Spartanburg County Coroner’s Office identified the victims as Donna Renee Bailey of Marysville, Tennessee; 31-year old John Daniel Fink of Zirconia, North Carolina; and his 9-year-old son James Landon Fink. All were dead at the scene. Another motorist is being treated for burns.
