Decatur, GA (December 18, 2022) – On Sunday, at 2:00 p.m., an automobile collision in Decatur resulted in injuries.
Local authorities claim that the incident occurred in the southbound lanes of I-285 close to exit 41, Memorial Drive. Two or three drivers were moving through the area when they crashed in the southbound lanes of traffic, resulting in significant damage to all vehicles involved. Tow trucks were used to remove the affected vehicles from the area.
To assist individuals in need, paramedics, fire departments, and a number of additional responders were summoned to the site. The accident caused one or more victims to suffer significant injuries, and although their conditions are now unknown, the wounded individuals were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment.
Two left lanes of traffic remained blocked in the region, causing delays while the area was being cleaned up.
The area reopened about two hours later, but the accident’s circumstances are still being looked into. Police will provide updates when new information becomes available.
Our hopes and best wishes for a full recovery go out to the injured victims.
