Last updated Wednesday, January 18th, 2023
Atlanta, GA (December 14, 2022) – A number of individuals were injured in an accident involving two to three motorists in Atlanta, Georgia, early on Wednesday evening, December 14th.
At around 6:50 p.m. on northbound I-85, two or possibly three automobiles crashed and blocked the right lane as they neared I-285, according to local authorities. One car attempted to pull into the right lane, which was occupied by two other vehicles, and reportedly struck at least one other driver.
Several first responders, including paramedics, firefighters, and others, were sent to the incident scene. Everyone who was hurt was sent to a local hospital for treatment.
There have been no updates on the accident or inquiry, and the identities of the victims remain unknown. The probe is still active at this time, however.
We hope for a complete recovery for all injured victims.

In the previous few years, according to state authorities and traffic monitors, there have been an average of seventy automotive accidents each hour in Georgia.

These accidents may result in deaths, car damage, and other consequences at busy intersections and on crowded roadways.

Even though the majority of the blame lies with those who caused the accident, victims often endure the repercussions. Victims may experience feelings of helplessness and confusion, especially if they have suffered physical or mental damage as a consequence of an occurrence that was not their fault.
