Posted: Updated:
COOK COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

Georgia State Patrol says that pouring rains caused a six vehicle wreck that led to a traffic jam on I-75 Thursday morning.

Troopers got the first call around 12:40 AM on Thursday.

A pick up truck had a blow out on I-75 in Cook County just north of the Lenox exit.

The truck spun 180 degrees and blocked the center lane.

A tractor trailer then hit the truck.

A car then hit the tractor trailer causing it to spin...a second car then hit the first car...followed by a van hitting the second car.

Then a second tractor trailer hit the van...jackknifed...and went into a ditch on the east side of the interstate.

This caused all the northbound lanes to be blocked and traffic to be diverted to U-S 41.

The interstate reopened to traffic around 3:00 this morning.

Fortunately, there were no serious injuries reported.

No charges will be filed.
