Multiple Accidents.

The original call was for an accident on I77 at the 39mm NB.  The units, when they checked enroute, were advised of another accident with unknown injuries on the SB side.  The Troutman unit checked and found one person had neck injuries as well as leg injuries and requested an ambulance.  The incidents started when there was a 5 vehicle accident about the 37mm involving a bus and four cars.  When vehicles started backing up, the one on the SB side occurred for stopped traffic.  The wreck on the NB side occurred with people watching the wreck on the SB side.  There was a female who complained of back injuries who was transported.  Units from Troutman Fire & Rescue, Shepherds Fire & Rescue, Mooresville Rescue, Iredell County EMS, IMAP and NC SHP responded to the scenes.
