Ringgold, GA – Multi-Vehicle Collision with Injuries Involving Truck on I-75

Ringgold, GA (May 20, 2022) – On Friday afternoon, May 20, a multi-vehicle collision with injuries took place on a roadway in Ringgold. 

According to Catoosa County officials, the accident happened in the southbound lanes of I-75 around the area of mile marker 352 in Catoosa County. A tractor-trailer was traveling in the area when it collided with a pickup truck that was also traveling in the southbound lanes. The truck went off the side of the road and the pickup truck sustained severe damages.

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

The roadway was blocked in several lanes of traffic for some time. Several vehicles were turning around in the area due to not being able to get through traffic. This led to more accidents almost taking place. 

No further details have been released. Police continue their investigation into the circumstances of the accident.
