Several responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. One or more unidentified victims sustained injuries in the accident. The injured parties were hospitalized. Their conditions are not fully known.

Tractor-trailers are some of the largest vehicles that navigate our roads every year in Georgia. These large modes of transportation weigh as much as 80,000 pounds and are capable of causing some of the most catastrophic damage when they are involved in accidents. In just one recent year in the U.S., over 119,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents. Truck drivers are supposed to be some of the safest drivers on our roads. However, they still make mistakes like distracted driving or falling asleep behind the wheel, which quickly leads to devastating collisions. If you have been hurt in a truck accident and believe that another party is to blame, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust.
