DULUTH, Ga. (AP) - A major crash in the northbound lanes of I-85 brought traffic to a near standstill at the height of rush hour in the Gwinnett County area.

Georgia Department of Transportation officials say the crash Thursday afternoon involved a tractor trailer and a passenger vehicle on I-85 near Pleasant Hill Road. Officials said in an alert that six of the seven lanes were blocked.

Officials say they don’t expect the crash scene to clear until 5 or 6 p.m. and anyone traveling north toward I-985 or state route 316 should find an alternate route.
