FAIR PLAY, SC (WSPA) – A portion of Interstate 85 in Fair Play that was closed Tuesday morning due to two crashes, has been reopened.

The crashes reportedly happened on I-85 northbound at mile marker 3. The road was reported to be blocked to traffic and a detour was put in place directly following the crash.
