An early morning accident closed down the northbound lanes of US 321 north of Lincolnton Tuesday morning (March 16th). The accident involved a tractor-trailer rig that iried to pass another on the right, ran off the road and struck a guard rail that partially blocked the highway. A garbage truck then hit the guard rail. Both lanes were only totally blocked briefly, but because of heavy traffic, northbound traffic was backed up several miles at one point. The good news is that nobody was seriously hurt.
