Truck Fire Backs Up Traffic on I-85 Thursday Morning
It happened about 8a on I-85 northbound near mile marker 158. The driver was not hurt, but the cab and most of the trailer was destroyed.
Motorists could be seen getting out of their vehicles and walking their dogs in the grassy median.
Further up the Interstate, at mile marker 172, another 18-wheeler jackknifed and ran up an embankment. Traffic there was slowed, and there were only slight delays as crews worked to clear that wreck.
