Person rushed to hospital after being hit by car on I-485

Emergency crews on are the scene of a serious accident along the outer loop of I-485 in western Mecklenburg County.

It happened around 9:00 Friday night near mile marker 11.

Medics tell WBTV the pedestrian was rushed to the hospital with life threatening injuries.  Our crews on the scene report it appears three to four cars may have been involved.

Moments ago, Troopers with the State Highway Patrol opened up one lane of the freeway sending cars through the area at a crawl.

We are working to gather more information for you right now as to why the person was out along the freeway, and what their condition might be.
