Dunwoody, GA (February 28, 2023) – A motorcycle collision with serious injuries occurred on a major highway in Dunwoody on the morning of Tuesday, February 28.

According to Dunwoody officials, the accident happened around 8:27 a.m. in the westbound lanes of Ashford-Dunwoody Road (I-285) around the area of GA-400. Police confirmed that a motorcyclist was traveling on the highway when they were suddenly struck by a passenger vehicle in the westbound lanes of traffic. It is believed that the driver who struck the motorcyclist remained at the scene.

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. Photographs taken at the scene showed that a bystander got out of her vehicle and stayed with the motorcyclist, who was lying in the middle of the road as traffic stopped around them. The victim was hospitalized with critical injuries, though their current condition is not yet known.

A large portion of the highway was blocked in the area of the accident for some time. This led to extensive delays until the scene was fully cleared.

The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues.

We offer our warmest sympathies to the party injured in this accident. We hope that they will fully recover from their injuries.
