North Carolina: I-485 drivers criticized by EMS for gawking at and videotaping overturned car

Interstate 485 drivers caused a traffic jam while gawking at and videotaping an overturned car, emergency responders said in a lengthy rebuke on Twitter Saturday night.

“Please put your phones down and keep your eyes on the road,” Matthews Fire & EMS tweeted earlier in the day with two photos from the wreck scene, including one of an overturned car.

Three people had to be extracted from the wreck and were taken to hospitals, according to Matthews Fire & EMS.
