Fire reported after truck collision on I-85

Posted: Updated:

BUFORD, Ga. (AP) - Gwinnett County fire officials say a tractor trailer caught fire and another was severely damaged in a crash on Interstate 85.

Department spokesman Colin Rhoden says firefighters were called to the southbound lanes of the interstate Tuesday afternoon. Rhoden says the cab of a tractor carrying electronic equipment was on fire when authorities arrived and was spreading to the attached trailer.

Rhoden says the crash caused both trucks to veer off of the highway.

Rhoden says the driver of one of the trucks suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital. The second driver was treated on the scene.
