GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — One person is dead after a seven-vehicle crash caused delays and lane closures on northbound Interstate 85, just north of McGinnis Ferry Road in Gwinnett County Wednesday afternoon, according to Georgia State Patrol. 

GSP said troopers responded to the crash around 3:20 p.m. According to GSP's preliminary investigation, a pick-up truck struck the back of another vehicle and killed a passenger.

Gwinnett Fire, HERO, and Gwinnett Police also responded to the crash. According to GSP, charges will be taken by Gwinnett Police.

Police tweeted shortly before 4 p.m. that it's helping Georgia State Patrol at mile marker 111 in Suwanee. 

Authorities did not say how many people were involved in the wreck.
