The driver of the tractor-trailer that struck the pickup is considered at-fault, the release said. That driver, who hasn’t been named, was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. It’s unclear what charges that driver may face.
Earlier, officials directed motorists to turn around on the interstate. At one point, the southbound lanes and the express lanes were held until the flames were extinguished, causing more backups.
The road reopened just before 6 p.m.
In the earlier crash, a tractor-trailer wrecked at I-675, spilling what appeared to be drywall into the roadway. That scene cleared about 12:25 p.m.
