Atlanta, GA – All Lanes Blocked After Injury Accident in WB Lanes of I-20

Atlanta, GA (May 10, 2022) – At 2:12 a.m. on the morning of Tuesday, May 10, a car accident with injuries blocked all lanes of a highway in Atlanta. 

Upon arrival to the scene, Atlanta Police officials discovered that several vehicles collided in the westbound lanes of I-20 around the area of exit 55, Lee Street. Though the exact circumstances leading up to the collision are not yet known, it is believed that one or more vehicles lost control. This caused the vehicles to collide with each other, leading to severe damages. 

Several emergency responders, including Atlanta Fire and paramedics, were dispatched to the scene to help those with injuries. Injured parties were given treatment on site by paramedics and then rushed to local hospitals for further treatment. Their conditions are not known at this time. 

Traffic was delayed in all lanes for some time as police worked to clear the scene. A red alert was actually issued in the area for an extended period of time. Police urged those in the area to find alternate routes until the scene was cleared. 

The investigation into the circumstances of the collision remains ongoing. 

Our thoughts are with the injured parties who have sustained injuries in the accident.
