1 person hospitalized after crash that shut down all lanes on I-85 southbound

ATLANTA — A crash on Interstate 85 southbound in Midtown Atlanta closed all lanes and caused big traffic delays. Now, the lanes have reopened.

Triple Team Traffic’s Mike Shields first reported the crash occurred in multiple center lanes and the HOV lane.

A spokesman for Atlanta Fire Rescue told Channel 2 Action News that fire crews worked the scene, where a person was trapped inside one of the cars.

After working through the wreckage, AFRD said they were able to get the person out of the car and was taken to Grady Hospital for evaluation and care.

Shields says the crash is blocking the lanes before Exit 84, with the delays impacting traffic as far back as GA 400.

To get around it, Triple Team Traffic recommends using Peachtree Road, Piedmont Ave. or the Buford Spring Connector.
