One injured in tractor trailer accident in Gwinnett County, I-85 reopened

Posted: Updated:

One person was taken to the hospital after a tractor trailer accident on I-85 northbound at SR 316 in Gwinnett County.

Police say a tractor trailer went off the roadway and took down an overhead sign after having trouble with a front tire.

The driver was not able to stop in time and crashed through the guard rail, then a beam and sign fell onto the highway, according to reports.

Three lanes were diverted to exit 105 as a crane and HAZMAT cleaned up the road when the truck began to leak diesel.

The road was reopened just before 1:00 p.m.
