All southbound lanes of I-85 are shut down in Fulton County after a tractor-trailer jackknifed on the interstate, the WSB 24-hour Traffic Center reported.

The crash occurred at the Flat Shoals Road exit in the city of South Fulton. Both South Fulton and Union City police are on scene, according to the Union City agency.

No details about the wreck have been released. It appears at least two passenger vehicles were also involved.

As a result of the shutdown, I-85 southbound traffic is backed up to Old National Highway. Authorities have not said when the interstate may reopen.

Motorists can take U.S. 29 to get into Union City, the Traffic Center reported.
