An earlier wreck on northbound Interstate 77 in south Charlotte is causing big problems for motorists this Tuesday morning.
But collisions and disabled vehicles are making for a miserable commute elsewhere in the region, too. Some of the wrecks are being blamed on poor visibility due to scattered dense fog.
The I-77 wreck was reported about 7:30 a.m. near Remount Road. Authorities said the vehicles were cleared from the road, but the congestion remains a problem. Traffic is snarled back to the state line.
An earlier wreck on northbound I-85 in Gaston County also has been cleared, and traffic there is returning to normal.
