Early accident on Wilkinson Boulevard

Watch for slow traffic on Wilkinson Boulevard near Sam Wilson Road. A hit-and-run around 6:43 a.m. in the roadway included property damage. That could slow traffic through that area.

An earlier accident was reported on Independence Boulevard near the Interstate 277 ramp but appears to have been cleared, with traffic moving normally.

The accident happened shortly after 6 this morning, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police were on the scene.

If you’re traveling on Interstate 77, expect to hit the brakes around the interchange with Interstate 85. In uptown, avoid Stonewall street if you’re in a hurry. It’s moving a little slowly.
