Charlotte Auto Accident Closes Harris Boulevard

Monday morning, WSOC-TV reported that an early morning car crash in Charlotte, NC closed Harris Boulevard at Grier Road for several hours. The accident involved a woman driving the wrong way on WT Harris Boulevard. Police closed the roadway for several hours while investigators tried to determine the reason for the crash, as well as for clean up efforts.

Witnesses report seeing a woman driving eastbound in the westbound lanes of WT Harris Boulevard shortly after 4:00am. Witnesses state that before crashing, the woman was seen nearly striking three other cars and weaving from lane to lane before ultimately striking an SUV head-on.

Police have not release the name of the wrong-way driver, nor the names of the victims. The at-fault driver remains in Carolinas Medical Center with critical injuries.

Minimizing your risk for a head-on crash

While oftentimes, it will be nearly impossible to avoid a head-on collision, there are steps you can take to minimize your risk.
*Allow a safe distance between you and the car in front of you
*Watch 15-20 seconds ahead for cars braking and entering and exiting the roadway
*Watch all directions as you enter an intersection
*Maintain appropriate speed-going too fast decreases the time to take evasive action
*Always be aware of the spatial relationship between your car and others
