Fulton County, GA (October 09, 2018) – A crash in Fulton County on I-85 headed southbound has caused major traffic delays today.
Just before exit 77 to the Metropolitan Parkway there is a traffic backup due to a multi-vehicle collision. The accident occurred at 11:20 AM. All lanes except for the far right are currently closed and expected to remain so for the foreseeable future so the heavy delays are expected to continue.
It is unclear at this time if anyone was injured as the investigation into the crash is still ongoing.
Georgia Multi-Vehicle Accidents
Multi-car accidents can range from a single car rear-ending another, to devastating pileups involving dozens of cars. It’s no wonder that multi-vehicle accidents that occur on the highway are also some of the deadliest. There are many, many factors that can contribute to accidents on the highway. Variables such as inclement weather, speeding, poor visibility, distracted driving, improperly maintained vehicles, and people that are just jerks can all contribute to the likelihood of an accident.
One of the unique dangers of a highway accident actually takes place after the accident has occurred. Motorists pull their cars off to the right shoulder as is protocol and are then injured in an attempt to exit their car on the side of oncoming traffic. In other cases, drivers on the road do not notice the vehicles pulled onto the shoulder in time and sideswipe the vehicle or potentially the person standing too close to the edge of the road attempting to assess the damage to their car. An even more terrifying scenario is that of one where the driver or passengers, due to the nature of the accident, are unable to exit a vehicle that is on fire. The most important thing to determine in any multi-vehicle accident is the negligent party. This can be exceptionally difficult in a collision involving several cars since no one wants to admit culpability or admit to the role they may have played in causing it.
