CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46) - Two people had to be taken to the hospital after a two car wreck on Interstate 485 Thursday morning.
The wreck happened about 10:30 a.m. on the I-485 inner loop right before I-77.
NC state police said a red pickup truck had pulled off to the side of I-485 for an unknown reason. The driver then went back into traffic and didn't check to see if the lane was cleared.
A white utility truck near-ended the pickup -- sending the pickup airborne into the grass and flipped on its back.
Both drivers were taken to CMC-Main with serious injuries.
