Last updated Saturday, February 4th, 2023
Atlanta, GA (January 28, 2023) – On the evening of Saturday, January 28, a serious rear-end accident happened on a busy highway near Atlanta.
Right before the Forest Parkway exit, there was an accident involving two vehicles on southbound I-675. According to early accounts, two vehicles crashed between the center and right lanes of the highway, forcing at least one driver to spin out.
The collision resulted in an hour-long closure of the highway. Both cars were removed from the scene due to the serious damage they sustained.
Despite the fact that it remains unknown how many victims were injured, EMTs and fire rescue units from Atlanta rushed to the scene to help and appeared to transfer at least one person to a local hospital.
However, the accident is still under investigation, and APD officers have provided no clarifying details.
Our thoughts now are with the injured victims and their families.
Rear-End Accidents in Atlanta
The most frequent kind of auto accident in Georgia and the rest of the nation, rear-end crashes result in a growing number of deaths and injuries every year. According to official figures, rear-end collisions, sometimes referred to as “fender benders,” comprise more than half of all automobile accidents in Georgia.
Frighteningly, even if a crash happens at lower speeds, it may still cause significant physical injury or death. From fractured bones and spinal cord damage by whiplash to paralysis, these injuries plague victims and their families all too often.
What’s more, at least 10% of all road deaths occurred in rear-end crashes the previous year. Clearly, given these grim statistics and facts, it is imperative that you take immediate action to safeguard your legal rights.
No matter how severe your injuries are, you risk getting wading into serious financial ruin and other difficulties because of unpaid medical costs and lost pay if you are forced to leave work. Moreover, coping with the aftermath of a collision caused by the negligence of another motorist may have catastrophic mental and emotional effects.
