All lanes of westbound Turner Turnpike have reopened following a fatal accident Thursday morning.
Both lanes reopened just after 12:30 p.m. Just before 10 a.m. Thursday, both lanes were closed near mile marker 167, which is just east of Chandler, after a tractor trailer slammed into another truck.
Authorities confirm one person has died in the accident and another was flown by helicopter to a nearby hospital.
Traffic was diverted at Stroud while crews cleared the accident. Authorities have not released any information about the victim.
The accident is under investigation.
