Vehicle crash on a Georgia highway leaves many injured

Last updated Tuesday, December 6th, 2022

A vehicle crash on a Georgia highway left a number of people injured on Friday, December 2. 

Georgia State Patrol reports that a collision involving two to three cars injured a number of people on a typically clogged Atlanta highway.

The unfortunate crash occurred around 4:30 p.m. on northbound I-285 close to Exit 5 and Langford Parkway, officials said. A preliminary investigation revealed that two to three cars were traveling in the left lanes of southbound traffic when the wreck happened. Further reports about the cause of the accident are awaited.

We will be able to get a better understanding of injured victims’ conditions as more reports become available, according to Atlanta officials.

In light of the consequences of the crash, the highway was closed, causing traffic delays that lasted well past midnight. 

As we send our thoughts and prayers to the injured victims, we wish them a speedy recovery, with no serious injury.
