Atlanta, GA - Multiple-Vehicle Wreck with Injuries on I-85 at Jimmy Carter Blvd

Atlanta, GA (February 9, 2023) – On Thursday evening, two or three automobiles crashed in Atlanta, leaving at least two individuals injured.

The incident happened just north of the Jimmy Carter Boulevard exit on northbound I-85 at around 7:50 p.m., according to the Atlanta Police Department (APD).

Initial fire and EMS responders reported two casualties, but their current conditions remain unclear.

The constricted departure ramp and backed-up right lanes caused a major traffic standstill. However, no other information on the cause of the incident is available at this time.

Our thoughts remain with the injured victims and their loved ones.

Those engaged in automotive mishaps should set aside a substantial amount to meet any legal and medical expenses that may emerge from the occurrence.
