Wrecked big rig blocks I-85

A wreck on Interstate 85 southbound had all lanes blocked after a tractor-trailer jackknifed in Belmont.

The collision happened just before 8:30 p.m. south of Exit 27, which leads to Mount Holly, Belmont and Belmont Abbey College.

It’s unclear what caused it, or if anyone was injured.

The N.C. Department of Transportation expects that side of the highway to be shut down until 1:30 a.m.

Officials encourage travelers to take Exit 27, then head South to U.S. 29/74 westbound. Turn north on Main Street and take that road back to I-85.
