Lithia Springs, GA (April 1, 2022) – Before 9 a.m. on Friday morning, April 1, a tractor-trailer crash with injuries took place in Lithia Springs. 

According to local officials, the accident happened in the westbound lanes of I-20 around the area of exit 44, Thornton Road. A tractor-trailer was traveling in the area when it forcefully collided with the back of another tractor-trailer due to reasons that are not yet known. A portion of the first truck was crushed and veered to the side.

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. One or more victims sustained injuries in the collision. The injured parties were taken to local hospitals for treatment. Their identities and conditions are not known at this time. 

Two right lanes of traffic were blocked in the area for an extended period of time. Police urged those in the area to use Highway 78 as an alternate route.

Tractor-trailers are some of the largest vehicles on our roads in Georgia. This means that they are capable of causing some of the most extensive harm in the event of an accident. In fact, in just one recent year’s time in the U.S., over 110,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents within the state caused by other’s reckless acts.
