One car remains in the median as traffic comes to a stand still in the northbound lanes of Interstate 85 near exit 13 about 2:30 p.m. Friday. Just feet away from the car, a tractor trailer ran off the road and into the wood line. At least one person was injured, and traffic was snarled on the interstate for about an hour. Multiple other accidents were reported along I-85 Friday afternoon as Labor Day weekend traffic flooded the roads.
