“The crash happened around 8:20 a.m. on U.S. 49 near Cabarrus Farm Road. Pastor Randy Davis of University City Seventh-Day Adventist Church said he heard an explosion, went outside and saw a huge ball of smoke and fire rise from the wreckage.
Paramedics said one person was transported to Carolinas Medical Center-University but his or her injuries are not life-threatening.
The ramps connecting Interstate 485 and U.S. 49 are currently blocked. Officials said they will likely reopen at 11:30 a.m. U.S. 49 is also closed to traffic in both directions.”
