Dunwoody, GA – Lanes Blocked Following Car Accident in WB Lanes of I-285

Dunwoody, GA (May 14, 2022) – Early on Saturday morning, May 14, lanes were blocked and injuries were reported in a serious car accident in Dunwoody. 

According to local officials, the accident happened around 4:34 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-285 around the area of exit 29, Ashford Dunwoody Road. Several vehicles were traveling in the area when one or more lost control in the early morning hours. This caused the vehicles to forcefully collide with one another, causing extensive damages. 

Several local responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. Emergency responders were seen providing medical care to one or more victims at the scene. The injured parties were then rushed to local hospitals for further treatment. 

Due to the severity of the collision, a large portion of the roadway was blocked for some time. Police quickly worked to clear the scene so traffic could return to normal. 

Dunwoody officials continue their investigation into the circumstances of the accident at this time. 

Our thoughts are with those who have sustained injuries in this accident. We hope that they will receive a full and fair recovery.
