Portion of I-85 closed after fatal wreck

Part of Interstate 85 had to be shut down after a fatal wreck in Gwinnett County.

Authorities say one person died Saturday in a crash involving a car and an 18-wheeler in Suwanee.

The truck caught fire, and police and fire crews had to close the southbound lanes of I-85.

Traffic was being rerouted to an access road, and the Georgia Department of Transportation says it could take hours to get traffic back to normal.

Authorities didn’t immediately release the name of the person who died in the wreck.
