CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston Police say a crash late Tuesday afternoon in downtown Charleston killed two people riding on a motorcycle.

The crash involved four vehicles, one of which was a motorcycle, Sgt. Elisabeth Wolfsen said. The driver and passenger on the motorcycle were pronounced dead at the scene.

The roadway was closed for more than five hours while the police department’s Major Accident Investigation Team investigated and processed the scene, Wolfsen said.

Multiple occupants of the other vehicles sustained non-life threatening injuries and have been treated by medical personnel.

The road is now open to traffic.
