CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

An injury wreck on Interstate 16 eastbound near Chatham Parkway tied up traffic Tuesday morning.

Police say a car drove into the back of a pick-up, breaking off the rear axel of the truck and forcing it to crash onto the hood of another vehicle. The Jaws of Life had to be used to get the driver of the first car out of the wreckage. That driver was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries.

All eastbound lanes reopened to traffic shortly before noon.
