A follow-up investigation at the scene of an accident that happened last week and killed two commercial truck drivers will be conducted shortly after 11 a.m. starting at Buford Drive from both I-985 and I-85.

The intersection where Ga. Highway 124 and Grayson Highway meet has been reopened following a closure due to downed wires in the road.

Lawrenceville Police Department spokesman Lt. Jake Parker said at about 4:45 p.m., a truck hit a power pole in the intersection, causing wires to fall into the road.

For safety, police closed the intersection, though it was reopened just after 5:30 p.m. Power has also been restored to local businesses.
