(CBS Charlotte) — NC-51 was shut down in both directions this afternoon, following a car accident in Pineville.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation reported that the accident happened around 2 p.m. today. The road was later reopened about an hour after the initial report was received.
It is not clear at this time how many cars were involved in the accident, whether or not there were any fatalities.
Drivers are being urged to avoid the area.
