ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a Rock Hill woman who abruptly stopped her car in the fast lane on Interstate 77 caused a four-car crash that sent two people to the hospital and halted the morning commute.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports (http://bit.ly/17OMVMF ) that when a trooper attempted to stop 22-year-old LaQuisha Colvin for speeding Monday morning on I-77 near Fort Mill, she moved into the left lane and stopped.

A 17-year-old driver hit her car. Both he and Colvin then hit other cars.

Colvin is charged with speeding and illegally stopping in the roadway.

Lance Cpl. Billy Elder says Colvin was traveling 91 mph in the 60 mph zone.

She was treated and released from a Rock Hill hospital. The teenager was taken to a Charlotte-area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
