ATLANTA -- The aftermath of a tractor trailer crash and fire that completely shut down a portion of the Interstate 285 highway Friday morning has now been moved to the shoulder.

The crash happened on I-285 west at Riverdale Road in Clayton County, just south of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Georgia Department of Transportation officials say the tractor trailer, which was carrying 45,000 pounds of sand, crashed and spilled about 50 to 100 gallons of diesel fuel into the road before catching fire.

Nobody was injured in the crash.

GDOT expects the shoulder to be clear by 5 p.m. Friday.
