Atlanta, GA (August 22, 2022) – Police reports have shown that a tractor-trailer collision took place on a major highway in Atlanta on Monday morning, August 22. 

According to Atlanta officials, the accident happened around 8:26 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-85 around the area of Pleasantdale Road. A tractor-trailer was traveling in the area when it became involved in a collision with two or more other vehicles. The vehicles sustained severe damages as a result of the crash and had to be towed from the scene. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were immediately called to the scene to help those with injuries. One or more victims were seriously injured as a result of the crash. The injured parties were taken to local hospitals for treatment, though their current conditions are not yet known. 

Due to the severity of the accident, the vehicles had to be moved off onto the side of the road. This led to delays until the scene was cleared.
