Commuters are asked to take:
- Northbound, Hammond Road will be closed Chapanoke Road.
- Southbound, Hammond Road will be closed just south of the Beltline.
- Eastbound, Rush Street will be closed at Wilmington.
- Westbound, Rush Street will be closed as Shelden.
There were no serious injuries in the single-vehicle hit-and-run wreck that started the problems at the intersection, and there were no injuries when a tractor-trailer subsequently became tangled in downed wires.
The original hit-and-run vehicle and its driver were located nearby. The driver is in custody.
The wreck occurred about 2:30 a.m. today. A wreck report will be forwarded later this morning when it is completed.
