All lanes are open on I-75 North after a tanker truck overturned onto a car, Henry County police Capt. Joey Smith said.

Just before 4 p.m. Friday, all northbound lanes were shut down after the crash near Hudson Bridge Road, Smith said. Lanes reopened about 7 p.m.

The tanker rolled on top of a car and crushed it, but police said both drivers were taken to local hospitals with non- life-threatening injuries.

It is not known what the tanker was carrying, but the words “latex, polymer and chemical” were written on the side.

A hazardous materials team was called to the scene but was not needed, Channel 2 Action News reported.

All I-75 traffic was diverted onto the Hudson Bridge Road exit temporarily, severely clogging surface streets in the area. Some cars were turned around on I-75 and exited via the on-ramp.
