A teenage girl was killed and three others were hurt in a wreck Thursday afternoon on Interstate 485 outer in southwest Charlotte, officials confirmed to Channel 9.
The Charlotte Fire Department tweeted at 4:17 p.m. that the outer loop was closed at the Interstate 77 South interchange near Pineville.
Highway Patrol told Channel 9 on Friday that an SUV lost control on a ramp and flipped onto I-485, then the SUV was hit by a truck.
There were three adults and two children in the SUV, according to Highway Patrol. A 13-year-old girl was killed in the crash, and the others inside the SUV were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
No charges are expected to be filed against the truck driver, officials told Channel 9. The crash is still under investigation, and it’s not clear if the wet roads at the time were a factor.
