Two people are injured after a multi-car crash in north Charlotte Friday morning.

The crash was reported around 9:45 a.m. in the 8100 block of University City Boulevard, about a quarter-mile north of the U.S. 29-N.C. 49 split.

According to a Charlotte Fire Department spokesperson, it took a crew of 14 firefighters almost 25 minutes to free a motorist from the wreckage.

Medics say two people have been transported to Carolinas Medical Center.  One person was suffering from potentially life-threatening injuries.

Details on the cause of the crash are still forthcoming.

Motor-vehicle studies reveal that driving 35 miles per hour is two times more likely to kill someone than if they were going 30 miles per hour or less.  Speed is the most common factor in motor-vehicle collisions.  Obeying the speed limit can make a difference of life or death for you and your loved ones.  If you suffer an injury in a serious accident, call the Accident Attorneys of Reeves, Aiken, and Hightower at 704-499-9000 or 877-374-5999 toll-free.
