The news reports state that the two accidents were on Charlotte’s biggest thoroughfares: Interstate 77 and Interstate 485.
The car crash on I-77 was near the Woodlawn exit, or exit 6 for your fellow commuters. That brought traffic to a complete standstill around 8:00 a.m., the time most of us leave for work. There was even one point when traffic was backed up almost 10 full miles, where cars were at a complete stop.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police with the aid of the NC Highway Patrol were able to push the accident over onto the shoulder and clear the affected area. However, as onlookers know, wrecked cars on the side of the road are still going to cause a terrible back-up.
The I-485 wreck also had traffic to a suffiecent halt for most of the morning. Traffic began to move, but at a snail’s pace.
What is important to note is that when you, or someone you know is involved in a serious car accident, you do not want everyone to stop and stare. Not only does it create serious road rage, but also, the victim of the crash most likely does not appreciate people staring at their misfortune.
