MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A “major crash” scene in Macon County on Interstate 85 northbound caused lanes to close Wednesday morning.

According to Macon County EMA Director, the incident happened just before the Shorter exit.

Lee says a vehicle hit a guardrail and was then struck by an 18-wheeler. The driver of the car was transported to a Montgomery hospital for treatment.

The driver of the 18-wheeler was uninjured, Lee added.

This is the third crash to happen in this area in less than a week. On Friday, a crash involving a vehicle and an 18-wheeler closed lanes for 14 hours while the scene was being cleared.
