Second I85 crash sends 2 to hospital

A second crash on Interstate 85 has continued delays started hours ago when two trucks collided.

Officials tell Fox 46 News that two people were hospitalized with minor injuries after their car overturned on Interstate 85 southbound near the weigh station. A tractor-trailer on-scene appears to have also suffered front-end damage.

Southbound delays stretch back to Interstate 485. Northbound traffic is slow due to on-looker delays. Northbound traffic delays start near the Gaston Mall (Exit 21), where traffic slows approaching a crash involving two tractor-trailers.

Due to both crashes, Interstate 85 is slow in both directions near the Gaston County / Mecklenburg County line. Motorists can use US 74 as an alternate route.
