Fairburn, GA (September 14, 2022) – Several people sustained injuries as a result of a truck accident that took place on a Fairburn highway on Wednesday morning, September 14. 

According to Fairburn Police Department officials, the accident happened in the southbound lanes of I-85 around the area of Senoia Road. Police confirmed that a minivan was traveling in the area when it was involved in a collision with a large sanitation truck due to reasons that are not yet known. The involved vehicles were extensively damaged as a result of the collision. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. Five people sustained injuries as a result of the collision. One person sustained critical injuries and had to be flown to the hospital by medical helicopter. Three victims were listed in serious condition and one sustained minor injuries. 

The roadway was blocked in nearly all lanes as police worked to clear the scene. This led to delays in the area for quite some time. 

No further details have been released. Police continue their investigation and will update with any more information as it becomes available. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims involved in this accident. We hope that they receive a speedy recovery.
