Hoschton, GA (January 12, 2023) – One person was severely injured in a truck accident that took place on a highway in Hoschton on the night of Wednesday, January 11.
According to Georgia State Police, the accident happened around 6 p.m. on I-85 around the area of exit 126. Police confirmed that a tractor-trailer was traveling in the area when the driver was involved in a collision with at least two passenger vehicles due to reasons that are not yet known. The truck, as a result, struck an overhead sign in the area and became engulfed in flames.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The driver of the tractor-trailer, who has not yet been formally identified, sustained critical burn injuries in the accident. They were rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment, though their condition is not yet known.
The highway was completely blocked in the area of the accident for some time following the crash. Police reopened the road around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday night, so traffic could return to normal.
The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues. Police will update with more information as it becomes available.
We offer our warmest sympathies to the injured victim with hopes of a full recovery.
Tractor-trailers are some of the largest vehicles that navigate our roads across Georgia. In just one recent year’s time in the U.S., approximately 119,000 people were severely injured in truck accidents caused by the negligence of others. Truck drivers are expected to be some of the safest drivers on our roads in Georgia who always obey the rules they were taught during their training. However, reckless acts still take place in the blink of an eye, which often leads to serious accidents.
