A busy south Charlotte intersection could be closed into Friday night after a wreck knocked power out to traffic signals, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said.
Pineville-Matthews Road (Highway 51) was closed at Raintree Lane in both directions. At 5:30 p.m., the westbound right lane had reopened, the state Department of Transportation said.
The two-car wreck knocked power lines down, and traffic lights also are out at the Arboretum Shopping Center, according to CMPD.
