Truck crashes and burns on Interstate 75 in Monroe County

Interstate 75 north is expected to be back open in all lanes in Monroe County by 10:30 a.m. after a tractor trailer crashed and burned near the Rumble Road exit.

The driver of the truck was injured in the crash, according to deputies from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

The Georgia Department of Transportation closed two right lanes as wreckers removed the trailer and the burned cab from the side of the road.

The truck left the right side of the road, hit a guardrail and continued down an embankment where it hit trees and caught fire at about 8 a.m.

No further information was immediately available but the Monroe County Sheriff's Office is expected to release more information later today.
