Crash involving tractor-trailer causes I-85 gridlock for hours in south Fulton

Thanks to a multi-vehicle wreck on I-85 North in south Fulton County, the usual stressful Monday morning commute turned into a major headache.

The lanes finally reopened around 11 a.m., nearly three hours after the crash gridlocked traffic.

The interstate was shut down just south of I-285 after a tractor-trailer turned across all travel lanes and flipped, blocking all but a left shoulder.
