Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Drivers on I-77 northbound got a surprise Thursday morning.

It was originally reported at about 10:15 a.m. as "debris on the road" at mile marker 10 in Charlotte.

As it turns out, AA batteries were spilled on the highway near the Trade Street exit.

Crews shut down I-77 northbound at Trade Street for a short time in order to clean up the batteries from the roadway.

The road was back open by early afternoon.

No one was hurt.
