• Jack-knifed tractor-trailer causes massive delays on I-85S in Gwinnett Co.


    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - All lanes were blocked for more than two hours after a crash and fuel spill on I-85 South just north of the I-985 split in Gwinnett County.

    Officials with the Gwinnett Police Department tweeted that the crash involved a jack-knifed tractor-trailer. 

    Delays stretched back to Hamilton Mill Parkway, and motorists in the area were advised to seek alternate routes.

    Hazmat was originally requested to evaluate a ruptured fuel tank that was leaking diesel fuel. The fuel was contained to a ditch in the center median of the road.

    The driver of the tractor-trailer was treated at the scene for a minor injury complaint and released.

    As of 5 p.m., the interstate had reopened.
