Jess Cruser, who lives close to the damaged area, said she heard a loud crash on Sunday morning, about 9 a.m.

The road leads to the Riverbanks Zoo Botanical Garden on the Lexington County side. It is a county-maintained road and serves visitors to the zoo and botanical garden, which hosts one million guests a year.
