Intersection closed for weekend after accident involving tractor trailer

An accident in Mooresville involving a tractor trailer has caused an intersection to close until Sunday. A detoured area will be in place until then.

On Thursday night the driver of a tractor trailer got in an accident pulling down power poles and lines at the intersection of Wilson Avenue and Broad/Main streets. No injuries were reported.

There are currently no function traffic lights at the intersection. 

According to state law, when a traffic signal is out, the intersection should be treated as an all-way stop sign, meaning all directions stop and then proceed once it’s safe to do so.
