LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A deadly crash involving a pedestrian has led authorities to close all southbound lanes of Interstate 85 in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

Gwinnett County police tweeted that the highway's HOV lane was open during the shutdown. The county's transit system tweeted that all its express routes would be delayed.
