Northbound I-85 moving slow in Gaston County due to wreck

Two separate wrecks on northbound Interstate 85 in Gaston County have traffic backed up for at least a mile.

A collision occurred shortly after 1 p.m. near Highway 273 in Belmont. Two of four lanes of traffic remained closed around 2 p.m., according to the report from N.C. Department of Transportation.

A second incident, a two-car collision, is tying up traffic near Cox Road. Medics and fire department officials are on the scene.

Traffic is moving slow and sometimes comes to a standstill in those areas.
