HARDEEVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Hardeeville police say multiple tractor trailers crashed on Interstate 95 in an eight-vehicle wreck after a tractor-trailer hauling beer hydroplaned.

Police tell local media outlets the tractor-trailer was heading northbound on I-95 around 4:30 a.m. Thursday morning and hydroplaned, hitting a tree and spilling beer into the grass along the highway. Hardeeville Police Department chief Sam Woodward says the tree fell in the roadway.

Woodward says another tractor trailer and six other cars were unable to stop in time, causing a pileup. There were no reported injuries.

I-95 was open around 8:30 a.m. Police closed one lane of the interstate while the tractor trailer that hit the tree was removed.
