Though the Tuesday morning commute is largely behind us, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police remain on the scene of multiple wrecks across the city.
Drivers have been running into problems throughout the morning largely because of overnight showers that not only dropped rain but also caused many leaves to fall, making for slippery conditions.
At 9:30 a.m., Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were responding to about 15 wrecks and other traffic incidents, including three reported collisions with injuries. Among the wrecks was a collision in the 8600 block of University City Boulevard.
Police also were still on the scene of a wreck on Beatties Ford Road and Sao Paula Drive near Huntersville involving an overturned vehicle.
Despite all of the wrecks, there were no immediate reports of any serious injuries from any of the collisions.
Earlier Tuesday, police were called to Tryon Street near Stonewall in uptown after a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools bus was involved in an accident. No students were injured, but another person was treated for what were described as non-life-threatening injuries. There were conflicting reports Tuesday about whether the injured person was a pedestrian or someone from another vehicle. NBC Charlotte contributed
