BULLOCH CO., GA (WTOC) - Traffic was detoured for hours on I-16 westbound between exits 111 and 116 after a fiery crash involving two tractor-trailers Wednesday morning.

It happened just before 8 a.m. near the Bulloch-Candler County line. Both drivers were able to escape with no injuries. Officials say one tractor-trailer was parked on the side of the road when the other truck drifted and hit the one that was parked.

The Georgia State Patrol, the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office and Candler County Sheriff's Office all responded, along with local fire crews.

GSP says all westbound lanes of I-16 are now back open. The crash remains under investigation.
