The motorcyclist killed in Thursday morning’s collision with a tractor-trailer that shut down I-75 northbound in Henry County for several hours was identified Friday as Edward A. Bridges, 45, of Riverdale.

The wreck happened before 11:30 a.m. Thursday about a mile south of I-675. The northbound lanes of the interstate reopened around 3 p.m.
