All lanes of northbound I-85 were shut down after a tanker crash in Townville near exit 11 early this morning. Traffic was detoured off at exit 11 and back on at exit 14.

Townville Fire Chief Billy McAdams says two cars crashed and the truck driver was trying to avoid that wreck when he crashed and overturned.

The truck driver was trapped inside the tanker after the crash. The other two drivers were also taken to the hospital as a precaution.
