A collision in Charlotte’s uptown and a broken water main on a heavily used highway in Cabarrus County have been the big traffic stories Friday.
The crash happened about 9:20 a.m. on South Tryon Street at East Morehead Street, at the southern edge of the uptown area. A van and a car collided at the intersection, and the car veered into the front of a nearby building.
The woman driving the car was taken by Medic to the hospital.
Meanwhile, motorists who use U.S. 29 in Cabarrus County are dealing with a lane closure. A water main ruptured on the southbound side of U.S. 29, also known as Concord Parkway, near Pitt School Road.
