Atlanta, GA (August 27, 2022) – Police responded to a two-vehicle crash that took place on a major highway in Atlanta and led to injuries on Saturday evening, August 27. 

According to DeKalb County officials, the accident happened around 5:56 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of I-285 around the area of I-675. Two vehicles were traveling in the eastbound lanes of traffic when they collided with one another due to reasons that are not entirely known. One of the involved vehicles spun around in traffic and the back bumper fell off in traffic. 

Several local responders, including Atlanta paramedics and fire crews, were called to the scene to help those with injuries. One or more victims were hurt as a result of the crash. The injured parties were rushed to local hospitals for treatment, though their conditions are not known at this time. 

One left lane of traffic was blocked in the area for some time following the collision. This led to delays for an extended period of time.
