CORNELIUS, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Both the north and southbound lanes of I-77 at Exit 30 were shut down Thursday afternoon after a tow truck carrying a yellow cab taxi veered off the roadway and almost went into Lake Norman.
The tow truck went off the road for unknown reasons, through the guard rail and down an embankment in Cornelius. The rocks were able to stop the vehicle from entering the water.
Police say three vehicles were involved in the incident.
Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue said the southbound lanes will be down to one lane for the next hour or two.
