Stonecrest, GA – Tractor-Trailer Accident with Injuries on I-20 Near Panola Rd 

Stonecrest, GA (June 12, 2022) – Injuries stemmed from a serious tractor-trailer accident with injuries on a highway in Stonecrest on Sunday afternoon, June 12. 

According to DeKalb County officials, the accident happened around 2 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of I-20 around the area of exit 71, Panola Road. A tractor-trailer was traveling in the area when it collided with one or more passenger vehicles due to unknown reasons. This caused the tractor-trailer to jackknife across several lanes of traffic. The truck sustained immense damages as a result. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. One or more victims were injured as a result of the accident. The injured parties were hospitalized with injuries, though their conditions are not yet known. 

Two right lanes of traffic were blocked in the area for an extended period of time. This led to delays until police cleared the scene. 

The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues at this time. Police will update with more information as it is available. 

We offer our sympathies to those injured as a result of the accident.
