CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A person is in the hospital after a car overturned near a LYNX Blue Line station in Charlotte's South End Friday evening.

Medic confirmed first responders were called to the tracks on Remount Road near South Boulevard around 8 p.m. for a car crash. The agency later confirmed the patient they tended to was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) confirmed the car involved was blocking the tracks around the same time. About 10 minutes later, however, normal service resumed.

A WCNC Charlotte photojournalist who went to the scene saw a blue Honda HR-V overturned on its side with the windshield shattered. Crews worked to remove the small SUV from the scene.

The crash happened about two blocks away from the New Bern Blue Line station, which is located along New Bern Street off South Boulevard.
