There was a major wreck in southern NC today...well early this morning involving two 18 wheelers that collided and evidently were fatal. The accident was so bad that the interstate has been closed down since it happened around 3:30 this morning! First they closed both lanes north and south but they got the northern lanes up fairly quickly. The south bound lanes have been closed since the accident. It happened right below Exit 14 in NC. The interstate is backed up for miles going south and is a parking lot. People have been stranded in their cars and tractor trailers since it happened or they ran up on the traffic jam. The state did put up warning signs but I guess some folks ignored them. The roads around here are overloaded trying to get people off the interstate. It is 100 degrees here and I cant imagine being stuck in a car for 8, 10 or more hours. There is no end in sight either. They have so many roads blocked now. I live on one of the detours. Right now, people better hope they have a good GPS system or a handy map...lol. I think I would be getting a motel for the night and trying tomorrow. I know cars have to be out of gas. The only good point for some people is they got stuck next to some Mcdonalds type places. Some folks didnt though. Of course, getting over the fence would be a problem. What a nightmare.
