Multiple-vehicle collision reduced I-74 to one lane

HIGH POINT, N.C. -- A wreck involving multiple vehicles brought Interstate 74 westbound down to one lane Tuesday morning.

All lanes are now open as of about 9 a.m.

The collision took place shortly before the Eastchester Drive exit.

High Point police said injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

The reduction in lanes caused traffic to back up as vehicles funnel past the collision.

Police said clearing the scene would take an hour because some of the vehicles could not be driven.
