ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA/AP) -

Two inside lanes of southbound of I-285 on the west wall have reopened after an 18-wheeler hauling copper wire jackknifed.

The big rig was traveling in the northbound lanes of I-285, just north of I-20. Its load spilled into the southbound inside lanes. The northbound lanes of I-285 are still blocked with the wreckage.

They are expected to clear around 7a.m. One person was injured and taken to a local hospital.
