Atlanta, GA – Tractor-Trailer Crash on I-285 Near I-75 Leads to Injuries

Atlanta, GA (August 22, 2022) – Injuries stemmed from a serious truck accident that took place on a highway in Atlanta on Monday morning, August 22. 

According to local officials, the accident happened around 6:14 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of I-285 around the area of I-75. Police confirmed that a tractor-trailer was traveling in the area when the driver of the truck lost control and collided with one or more passenger vehicles due to unknown reasons. All of the involved vehicles sustained immense damage in the accident. 

Several local responders, including Atlanta fire crews and paramedics, were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. It is believed that one or more parties sustained injuries in the accident. The parties were treated at the scene by EMS crews and then rushed to local hospitals for treatment. 

The roadway was almost entirely blocked in the area for a period of time after the accident. This led to delays in the area as police urged those traveling through to avoid the scene for some time. 

The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues at this time. 

We offer our warmest sympathies to the injured parties with hopes of a speedy recovery.
