CHAMBLEE, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a jack-knifed semitrailer caused some traffic delays before the wreckage was cleared near a busy freeway interchange just northwest of Atlanta.

The big rig wrecked and slammed into the median wall on Interstate 85 northbound, just north of I-285, around 4 a.m. Monday. Crews worked to make repairs to the wall before dawn Monday.

WSB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1lldJtu) that several lanes were closed in both directions on I-85 at the start of the Monday rush period.

By 6:20 a.m., the wreckage of the rig had been cleared and traffic was moving once again.
