Atlanta, GA (January 28, 2023) – A serious collision involving at least two automobiles occurred on a major highway in the Atlanta region on Saturday at approximately 6:00 p.m.
On the northbound I-85, close to the Indian Trail exit, there was an accident involving two to three drivers. Atlanta police were called to investigate, and their most recent data indicates that the vehicles collided in the right lanes of the highway, compounding the area’s traffic congestion at the tail end of local event traffic.
Medical and fire teams from Atlanta attended to the victims at the site of the crash, but it is yet unclear how seriously the victims were hurt. News footage appeared to show EMTs transporting at least two victims to a local medical center.
Witnesses were asked to get in touch with the Atlanta Police Department right away if they had any information about this incident. An investigation remains ongoing at this time.
Our thoughts go out to the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
