Decatur, GA (September 21, 2022) – One or more victims were hurt in a serious car accident that took place at a Decatur intersection on Wednesday morning, September 21. 

According to Decatur officials, the accident happened around 7 a.m. at the intersection of Covington Highway and Glenwood Road. Two vehicles were traveling in the area when police say that one of the drivers entered the intersection at a red light. This caused them to collide with each other, leading to severe damage.

The injured parties, who have not yet been identified, were taken to local hospitals for treatment. Their conditions are not yet known. 

Due to the severity of the accident, the center turn lane and the left lane of traffic were blocked for some time. This led to delays until the scene was cleared.
