Marietta, GA – Injuries Reported in Chain-Reaction Collision on I-75

Marietta, GA (May 25, 2022) – Injuries stemmed from a chain-reaction collision that took place on a major highway in Marietta on Wednesday, May 25. 

According to Cobb County Police, the accident happened around 5:17 p.m. in the southbound lanes of I-75 around the area of Delk Road, exit 261. Two or more vehicles were traveling in the area when one or more lost control, causing it to become involved in a severe chain-reaction collision. It is believed that one of the vehicles lost control due to wet and slick roads. The accident led to extensive damage to the involved vehicles. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were called to the scene to help those in need. One or more parties were injured in the accident. The injured parties were taken to local hospitals for treatment of their injuries, though their conditions are not yet known. 

Due to the severity of the accident, the roadway was blocked in multiple lanes for some time. Police quickly worked to clear the scene so traffic could continue.
