SHORTER, Ala. (WSFA) - Interstate 85 southbound in Macon County has reopened after a wreck near Shorter in Macon County.

The Alabama Law Enforcement says a crash, just past the Shorter exit, left the outside lane blocked. The roadway remained blocked until officials could clear the roadway.

The Shorter Volunteer Fire Department says two separate crashes involving tractor-trailers near mile marker 27 and the Tallassee exit also caused delays. These crashes have also since cleared.

Shorter VFD says the three crashes blocked lanes and caused significant delays for morning commuters.

Additional details on the crashes, including any potential injuries, have not been released.
