CARROLLTON, Ga. (AP) — Authorities shut down all of the westbound lanes on Interstate 20 west of Atlanta after a fiery crash involving at least one FedEx semitrailer.

The crash happened during the early part of Tuesday's morning rush period in Carroll County, and the westbound lanes of I-20 remained closed shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday.

There was no immediate information on any injuries.

Video from WSB-TV ( showed a large burned area and two FedEx trailers on their sides, with a medical helicopter and fire trucks on the roadway.

It was not immediately clear whether the two FedEx trailers were part of one tractor-trailer or two separate vehicles.
