Atlanta, GA – Serious Car Wreck, Injuries on I-85 at Jimmy Carter Blvd

Atlanta, GA (August 20, 2022) – On the afternoon of August 20th, multiple vehicles were involved in a collision in Atlanta, which left two or three people hurt.

The incident occurred at 5:35 p.m., according to the Atlanta Police Department (APD), and it occurred right before the northbound Jimmy Carter Boulevard exit from I-85.

Firefighters and paramedics who arrived first on the scene reported two casualties, although the victims’ present conditions remain unknown.

Right lanes backed up significantly, and the exit ramp was closed for about an hour. The investigation into the incident’s cause is ongoing, but no new information has been made public.

We hope that the injured people who were hurt on Saturday will make a full recovery, and we pray for all those who were affected by this crash.

At least 122,000 people were injured, and 1,100 lost their lives in these incidents due to the many dangers on our roads and the carelessness of many drivers, such as texting while driving and driving under the influence. Those who are engaged in automobile collisions should, of course, be well prepared to spend a substantial sum of money to resolve the inevitable legal and financial repercussions that will arise.

Injured people should not be expected to foot the expense of their own medical care; this should go without saying. If you were wounded in an avoidable accident, you should talk to a lawyer very away. Get in touch with an Atlanta accident attorney if you need help figuring out what to do following a car crash.
