ā€” A crash involving two cars closed a portion of the Beltline overnight.

The crash occurred before 1 a.m. Tuesday in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 440 near Exit 4 for Wade Avenue.

Police said one car was parked in the roadway when it was hit by the other. The driver of the moving car was taken to the hospital but is expected to recover from his injuries, officials said.

WRAL News spoke with a family member of the injured driver, who said the other car was parked in the middle of the highway. He said his brother, the driver, didn’t see it and had no time to react before the collision happened.

The parked car was completely burned, and no one was inside.

WRAL News is working to learn if the car caught fire before or after the crash and if police know who the car belongs to.
