ATLANTA — A wreck at Freedom Parkway has caused southbound traffic on the Downtown Connector to come to a grind on Wednesday morning.

All lanes were temporarily closed at least twice to facilitate emergency response vehicles. 

The wreck has caused backup almost the entire stretch of the Connector and even beyond on I-75 and I-85 past where they converge.

The wreck appeared to be clear about 7:15 a.m., but not before significantly altering the morning commute.
