RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) -

All lanes of I-95 northbound at exit 87 in Richmond Hill are now open after an accident involving two vehicles.

Authorities said the wreck happened at mile marker 82 and involved a semi-truck and a medical van.

The truck was in the emergency lane starting to merge onto I-95 north when the van smashed into the back of the truck.

A medical helicopter was called to the scene to transport the driver of the van to a local hospital.

"He was entrapped by the steering wheel, and we flew him out by LifeStar," said Bryan County Sheriff's Office Capt. Mike Maxwell. "He was responsive."

Two northbound lanes were closed for a couple of hours. The crash remains under investigation.

The Bryan County Sheriff's Office is conducting the investigation.
