FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -

Authorities closed several lanes in both directions of Interstate 285 just north of Interstate 20 after a tractor-trailer crashed into a median wall on Tuesday night.

The tractor-trailer was traveling northbound around 8:30 p.m. when it hydroplaned and struck the median in several places, police said. Several vehicles were damaged after running over debris from the median wall.

No injuries were reported.

The lanes were later reopened.

A separate accident impacted traffic on I-85 at I-285 in DeKalb County late Tuesday as well.
