The accident has blocked all northbound lanes of the interstate, and King said they will remain inaccessible for an undetermined amount of time while the Alabama Department of Transportation and State Troopers investigate the wreck, clear the debris and get the road safe again.

Traffic is being diverted onto Sumter County Road 20, Corporal King said, and motorists should avoid the area if possible and plan for delays and detours if not.
