Atlanta, GA – Car Crash in Construction Zone on I-285 Leads to Injuries
Atlanta, GA (August 22, 2022) – Injuries were reported in a car accident that took place on a major highway in Atlanta on Monday morning, August 22.
According to Atlanta Police Department officials, the accident happened around 4:38 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-285 around the area of exit 43, Covington Highway. Two or more vehicles were traveling on the highway in a construction zone when they became involved in a collision with each other. The vehicles involved in the crash sustained severe damages as a result of the crash and had to be towed away from the scene.
Paramedics and numerous other local responders were called to the scene to help those in need. It is believed that one or more victims were hurt as a result of the accident. The unidentified injured parties were taken to local hospitals for treatment, though their conditions are not yet known.
The roadway was blocked in several lanes of traffic. Only a right lane of traffic was open in the area until the scene was fully cleared, which led to massive delays.
