LIBERTY CO., GA (WTOC) - A crash involving two semi-trucks on I-95 South in Liberty County Monday morning has been cleared and all lanes are back open after being closed for most of the day.

Georgia State Patrol says the crash occurred around 5:10 a.m. Monday morning. A white semi was traveling southbound near mile marker 75 and was involved in some type of minor accident. The white semi was somehow able to pull off onto the shoulder and other motorists pulled over to assist that driver out of their truck.
