One dead in wreck on I-85 in Gwinnett | www.ajc.com


A fatal wreck involving a tractor-trailer and a minivan shut down most northbound lanes of I-85 in Gwinnett County during Thursday’s morning commute.

The wreck happened at 7:05 a.m. on I-85 northbound before Steve Reynolds Boulevard, according to Gwinnett police Cpl. Edwin Ritter.

Gwinnett police Sgt. Christopher Hyde told The Atlanta Journal Constitution that a minivan getting onto the interstate at Beaver Ruin Road “started cutting across the lanes and the minivan clipped the front of the tractor-trailer, which made both of the vehicles lose control, travel off the road and subsequently, the trailer became disconnected from the tractor and rolled over.”

Hyde said there was a man and woman in the tractor-trailer. The man was killed and the woman was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center with serious injuries, Hyde said.
