I-85 traffic moving after wreck

A wreck at the Belmont exit of Interstate 85 brought traffic to a standstill for almost an hour this morning, but Belmont Police and the Highway Patrol say all is clear now.

The wreck, which sent some people to the hospital, happened around 10 a.m.; traffic started moving again around 10:50.

The area around Exit 26 was already congested because of the Marine Mud Challenge, an obstacle-course race held at Belmont Abbey College this morning. Organizers expected around 400 competitors and had warned spectators to expect tight parking and heavy traffic.
