CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A three hearse collision caused delays on I-77 north near the Remount Road exit on Saturday.
According to Highway Patrol officer Trooper B. Jolly, the three hearses were with a group call “Carolina Coffin Cruisers”. They were headed to Greensboro for a car show and had coffins inside the vehicles as Halloween decorations.
Jolly says two of the three hearses slammed into one another causing a chain reaction. A passenger vehicle also collided with the third hearse.
Traffic was slow moving as bewildered drivers passed the collision. A Department of Transportation camera showed at least one hearse with a huge dent in the rear.
“It was certainly the first time I’ve ever seen three hearses involved in a car accident,” said Trooper Jolly in a phone interview with NBC Charlotte.
No one was seriously injured, and no citations were issued.
