Officials with the North Charleston Police Department have confirmed several people were transported to the hospital Wednesday morning after a crash at the intersection of Ashley Phosphate and Patriot Boulevard.
Those who witnessed the crash or the scene that later posted on social media described it as "horrible."
Witnesses, told first responders the driver of a white Chevy Tahoe was traveling southbound on Ashley Phosphate at a high rate of speed and struck a Ford F-150 making a turn. The Ford then spun around and hit a silver Honda Accord. The F-150 then lost its right rear wheel, which traveled across Ashley Phosphate and struck a blue Ford F-150 traveling northbound. A tire also struck the trailer of a Ford F-250 in the area.
Officials say the Tahoe struck the curb, flipped, landed on its roof and caught fire.
NCPD, NCFD and the Charleston County Rescue Squad were dispatched at 9:09 a.m. in response to what officials with Charleston County Consolidated Dispatch confirm was a report of a crash with injuries.
