Tractor Trailer Accident Slows I-85 South Bound to a Crawl

An accident on Interstate 85 South is slowing traffic to a crawl.

Alabama State Troopers tell WSFA 12 News that two tractor trailers were involved in an accident around the 25 mile marker.

Pictures coming into the WSFA 12 News Room show that at least one of the 18-wheelers was on fire.

That is near the Shorter exit.

Officials tell WSFA that traffic is backed up at least three miles.

State Troopers from the Opelika Post and Tallasee Police are currently working the scene.

There is no word on how long clean-up efforts will take.

We will bring you more information as it becomes available.
