Bad wreck on I-485 sends 1 to hospital Thursday

A person was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries after a wreck on Interstate 485 Thursday night that caused a vehicle to flip several times.

The west Charlotte wreck caused the inner loop of 485 to be closed for several hours, according to the N.C. DOT. The highway has since reopened.

Investigators have not released the name of the injured person or said what led up to the wreck. It was unclear if anyone else was injured.

According to WBTV, the Observer’s news partner, at least two vehicles were involved.
