A series of crashes shut down I-20 West through Douglas County for two hours at the start of the Monday morning commute.
The incident just before Thornton Road was reported at around 6:40 a.m., according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. All westbound lanes were shut down until about 8 a.m., when two lanes reopened. An hour later, the interstate had fully reopened.
The Georgia State Patrol said it involved seven vehicles in three separate crashes. Only minor injuries were reported, according to authorities, but all of the vehicles were disabled and had to be towed.
At the height of the shutdown, I-20 West was turned into a parking lot stretching back several miles to Six Flags Over Georgia.
