The accident remains under investigation, Baker said, and no charges have been filed.
The road was temporarily closed while authorities worked to clear the wreck, causing major traffic woes for several hours through Cherokee County.
The wreck also caused bus delays as schools were dismissed in the area, the Cherokee County School District said in an alert to parents.
At Knox Elementary School STEM Academy, routes 141, 179, 452 and 485 were rerouted. Routes 96, 110, 476 and 533 at Teasley Middle School and Cherokee High School were also rerouted.
The delays added more than 30 minutes to afternoon commutes from school. The school district provided water bottles to children on the buses without water.
