CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Several cars were involved in a wreck in the southbound lanes of Interstate 77 early Tuesday morning in north Charlotte.

The wreck occurred underneath the overpass for West W.T. Harris Boulevard (Exit 18) and it occurred around 7:40 a.m.

The wreck forced about three lanes traveling south from Huntersville to merge into one lane. 

Several fire trucks and Medic ambulances were on the scene around 8 a.m. It does not appear anyone was seriously injured in the accident.

Motorists heading from the Lake Norman area to Charlotte should consider taking Statesville Road or Beatties Ford Road as an alternate route to avoid the congestion on the interstate.
