According to Georgia State Patrol officials, the accident happened in the northbound lanes of I-75 around the area of Cassville-White Road. A red Dodge Ram, a white Honda Accord, and a tractor-trailer were all headed north when traffic suddenly came to a slow in the area. The Dodge Ram driver was unable to stop in time and slammed into the white Accord, which caused the Accord to slam into the back of the tractor-trailer. All of the involved vehicles sustained severe damage as a result of the crash.
Several local responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were all dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The driver of the Accord, identified as 54-year-old Angel Lucas-Cedeno, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries. Three passengers inside the Ram sustained injuries and are expected to be okay.
