Dekalb County Car Crash
Changing lanes is one of the most dangerous actions we take while driving on the highways in Georgia, and the danger is vastly increased when dealing with an interchange like Spaghetti Junction. The several interconnecting and overlapping on and off-ramps make collisions more likely and can have deadly consequences for those involved.
While no one was fatally injured in this collision, 5 people are killed every day in car accidents in Georgia and even more are injured.
