Person killed in crash on I-73/Business 85 in Greensboro

GREENSBORO, N.C. — One person was killed in a single-vehicle crash Wednesday morning on the Interstate 73/Business 85 bridge, according to the N.C. Highway Patrol.

The crash happened just before 11 a.m. Troopers tell FOX8 the crash happened on I-73 -- they are investigating how the vehicle ended up on Business 85.

Troopers said the call came in as an SUV heading south in the northbound lanes of I-73.

The vehicle then ran off the road to the right, went airborne and landed in the median and partially on the northbound lanes of Business 85.

No other vehicles were reportedly involved.

This is the same area where, on Dec. 13, a tractor-trailer loaded with 8,500 gallons of gasoline dumped flaming gas across the bridge. A fire resulted in millions of dollars in repairs.
