Charlotte, North Carolina – August 14, 2023 – An overnight crash in north Charlotte sent three people to the hospital early Monday morning.
WBTV reported that the crash occurred in the southbound lanes of Interstate 85 near Statesville Avenue. Crews were paving the road then, causing issues for first responders trying to get to the crash.
At least two vehicles were involved. One of them, a white pick-up truck that appears to have been part of the construction crew, was rear-ended, and a black SUV had heavy damage to the front end.
According to Medic, one person had life-threatening injuries, and two others were seriously hurt.
The dangers road construction and paving crews face on our North Carolina roadways are all too real. People will get hurt or killed when speeding or distracted driving is a factor in construction zones. It is up to all of us to help get these important workers home safely each day.
