All lanes are blocked as of 7:15 a.m. and, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation, they are expected to stay closed for several hours.

The crash site is not far I-85. SKYFox Traffic's Katie Beasley reports there are five crash-related injuries. No confirmation on the number of people hurt or the extent of their injuries.
