Oh boy, this is a problem. A big problem. A crash involving power lines closes I 77 in both directions between Tyvola and Woodlawn roads this morning. This will effect anyone coming into Charlotte from the South. Chris, Captain Jim and I were all effected on our drive in.
So what happened? Channel 9 says a crash involving a power line around 11 last night is the culprit. According to Captain Jim, multiple traffic signals are out.
Around 2,000 people are without power and probably won’t get it back til 6 tonight.
