Huntersville, NC (December 21, 2018) – Officials had to close a portion of Interstate 77 because of a car accident that took place in the early morning hours involving a road sign. The accident happened around 5 a.m. in the northbound lanes of the highway.
Police say that an SUV was involved in an accident that sent it off the road, where it then struck one of the Express Lane signs in the area. The sign was immediately knocked from its base. The damages to the vehicle involved were quite severe.
One ambulance came to the scene and another medic was called in to give aid to the injured driver, as they sustained a variety of serious injuries. They were quickly transported to the hospital but police were unclear of how bad the injuries were.
Traffic was diverted to Sam Furr Road for several hours and drivers were urged to avoid the interstate completely in that area.
We understand that it can be an extremely difficult time to be involved in a severe car accident, which is why we would like to extend our sincere sympathies to those injured in this accident.
