Union County highway reopens after tractor-trailer crash shuts down road

UNION COUNTY, N.C. — Crews worked most of the day Wednesday to clear a Union County highway after a tractor-trailer crash knocked traffic lights into the road.

Two tractor-trailers crashed just after 3 a.m. Wednesday, blocking part of U.S. Highway 74 near Sardis Church Road. The highway has since reopened.

The crash brought lines from the traffic lights down onto the highway.

The road closure and detours caused significant delays to build through the day.
