ATLANTA -- A major accident shut down two busy Gwinnett County roads Tuesday morning.

The accident occurred on Highway 316 at Buford Drive.

GDOT said two tractor trailers were involved in the wreck; one of the big rigs overturned and lost a load of logs. At least one of the vehicles also spilled diesel on the road.

All lanes of Buford Drive and the westbound lanes of Highway 316 were shut down for a few hours. Both roads have since reopened.

A second accident on southbound Interstate 285 at Northlake Parkway in Tucker has since cleared, but there may still be some delays in the area.
