This morning around 6:30 a.m., a hit-and run that resulted in injuries caused horrific traffic for all travellers of Interstate 485, Interstate 77, and caused detours all the way to Concord.
The car accident occurred this morning at the intersection of Pineville- Matthews Road and Rea Road in South Charlotte Motorists were forced to use Interstate 485 as an alternate route. This particular highway is notorious for having some of the worst morning traffic in the greater Mecklenburg area. However, when ever there is a car accident during the morning hours, the highway is particularly slow.
Unfortunately, the victim of the hit-and-run suffered injuries, as did all the drivers on our interstates this morning. Both of our major interstates were “bumper-to-bumper” traffic for hours, as drivers were forced to use alternate routes, that in turn, created worse traffic through the city’s streets.
In the event that there is a car accident, the best course of measure is to just continue on your route and do not slow down or come to a halt to scrutinize the severity of the accident. Distractions are plentiful enough as drivers are trying to make it to work on time in the morning. It is simply adding injury to insult when the drivers serve as ” on-lookers” make matters worse by continuing the distraction through a new medium.
