Atlanta, GA – Car on Top of Another on I-285 Near I-20 Area

Atlanta, GA (March 11, 2022) – On Friday evening, March 11, a car accident with injuries took place on a major highway in Atlanta. 

DeKalb County Police confirmed that the accident happened in the southbound lanes of I-285 around the area of exit 46, I-20. A pickup truck and a Jeep were traveling in the area when they forcefully collided with each other due to reasons that are not yet known. This caused the pickup truck to land on top of the Jeep. The vehicles both sustained heavy damage as a result. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. One or more injured victims were taken to local hospitals for treatment of their injuries. Their conditions are not yet known. 

Due to the severity of the crash, only the right lane of traffic was open for some time. This led to delays in the area. Police urged those driving through to use I-75 as an alternate route. 

No further details have been released. The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
