Henry County investigators are looking for witnesses to a crash on I-75 that set a tractor-trailer ablaze and injured five people Wednesday morning.
The crash, which also involved an express van and an SUV, blocked the interstate at the Ga. 138 ramp for hours. The van also caught fire.
Three of the five people injured were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with moderate to critical injuries and remained there Friday, police spokesman Capt. Randy Lee told AJC.com. Two others were taken to Piedmont Henry Hospital with moderate injuries and were released, he said.
“The investigators are still looking into the cause of the collision and are asking for any possible witnesses to shed light into the investigation,” Lee said.
All southbound lanes were shut down before 7 a.m. after the "massive fire" sent large flames and heavy black smoke over the interstate, according to the WSB 24-hour Traffic Center.
One left lane reopened just before 10 a.m., the Traffic Center reported. A second one reopened minutes later.
The cleanup, however, lasted past noon, leaving slight delays through Stockbridge.
Anyone with first-hand information is asked to call Investigator R. Clower at 770-288-8291.
