A Cobb County stretch of Interstate 75 has reopened after a fiery tractor-trailer crash closed lanes for a couple hours Wednesday.
One tractor-trailer caught fire on I-75 past Barrett Parkway about 1:05 p.m. and was “totally destroyed,” said Lt. Dan Dupree, spokesman for the Cobb fire department. The trailer portion of another was “heavily damaged” by the flames.
One person was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, Dupree said, and another went as a precaution.

Just before 3 p.m., GDOT tweeted that the tractor had been removed.
Traffic was diverted onto Barrett.
