Fairburn, GA (March 17, 2023) – A truck accident with injuries took place on a highway in Fairburn during rainy conditions on the afternoon of Friday, March 17.
According to local officials, the accident happened at 3:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes of I-75 around the area of Highway 74. Police confirmed that it was raining in the area, which made the highway slick. A tractor-trailer was driving on the highway when the driver lost control, becoming involved in a collision with at least one or more passenger vehicles. The truck sustained severe damages in the collision.
Several local responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were dispatched to the scene to help those with injuries. An ambulance was present at the scene, and several parties were seen receiving treatment for injuries. The victim’s conditions are not yet known.
Due to the severity of the collision, only a few lanes of traffic were left open in the area. There were delays until police fully cleared the scene.
The investigation into the collision remains ongoing at this time.
We want to take this time to offer our sympathies to the victims involved in this accident. We hope that they will receive a full recovery.
