At least 1 person critically injured in 10-vehicle crash on I-85 in Gwinnett County

Traffic is flowing once again along Interstate 85 northbound in Gwinnett County after a major crash kept traffic at a stand still for hours.

The wreck happened around 8 a.m. near SR 317, L'vill-Suwanee Road.

According to Georgia State Patrol, at least 10 vehicles were involved in the crash. One of the vehicles was a tractor trailer. When troopers arrived, they say they found two vehicles overturned. One driver had to be freed from the wreckage by Gwinnett Fire. That driver suffered a serious head injury and has been transported to Northside Gwinnett hospital in critical condition, according to GSP.

Officials say at least three other drivers suffered injuries.

GSP has set up a detour from I-85 northbound onto Old Peachtree Road and Sugarloaf Parkway.
