Last updated Wednesday, January 18th, 2023
Atlanta, GA (October 22, 2022) – A multi-car collision in Atlanta, Georgia, early on Saturday resulted in a handful of victim injuries.
According to local authorities, the incident happened at 2:00 a.m. on southbound I-85 when a line of cars approaching I-285 collided and blocked the right lane. One vehicle attempted to merge onto the highway from the right lane, which was already occupied by two other cars.
A large number of first responders were sent to the scene of the collision, including paramedics, firefighters, and others. As a precautionary measure, all wounded parties were sent to a neighboring hospital due to the presence of an injured party. Their current health status has not been revealed.
Nothing more has come to light concerning the accident or the accompanying inquiry, and this is also the case for the victims’ identities.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims in hopes of their complete recovery.
Car Accidents on Atlanta’s Busy Interstates
Traffic monitoring and state authorities estimate that in the last several years, Georgia has had an average of 70 car accidents every hour. Many of these incidents were made worse because of unpredictable or irresponsible driving. These accidents may result in deaths, automobile damage, and other consequences at busy intersections or on a packed roadway.
Irresponsible driving is estimated to cause 1.5 million accidents in the United States each year. The majority of the blame falls on those who caused the accident, yet victims often must pay the price. Victims may feel powerless and bewildered, particularly if they’ve suffered mental or bodily trauma due to an event that wasn’t their fault.
