Atlanta, GA (February 22, 2023) – A truck accident with serious injuries occurred on a major highway in Atlanta on the morning of Wednesday, February 22.
According to Atlanta Police, the accident happened around 9:46 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-20 around the area of I-285. Police confirmed that a tractor-trailer was traveling in the area when it was involved in a collision with one or more passenger vehicles. The involved vehicles were extensively damaged and had to be towed from the scene.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other Atlanta responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. One or more parties were allegedly injured in the accident. After being treated on the scene by EMS crews, the injured parties were taken to local hospitals for further treatment. However, their conditions are not yet known.
The left lane of traffic was blocked in the area for some time. This led to extensive delays in the area until the scene was cleared by police.
No further details have been released, but the investigation into the circumstances of the accident remains ongoing. Police will update with new information as it becomes available.
