RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A stretch of eastbound Interstate 440 was backed up during rush hour Friday evening. A minor crash and a “Trump Won” banner hanging from an overpass were to blame for the traffic.
A crash was reported just before 5 p.m. on I-440 near the exit for Wake Forest Road, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation. About a mile before that, though, a banner reading “Trump Won Save America” was seen hanging from the Six Forks Road overpass.
The crash was cleared by 5:20 p.m. Then, about 10 minutes later, a WNCN crew spotted Raleigh police officers speaking to the person hanging the banner. They left shortly after.
Traffic has since cleared up.
