Gwinnett County, GA (October 20, 2018) – I-85 northbound just before Jimmy Carter Boulevard had four blocked lanes of traffic on Sunday evening due to a multi-vehicle accident in the roadway.
Georgia State Police and multiple Fire and Rescue vehicles were on the scene to treat any injured parties. Police worked to investigate the crash and clear the scene, leaving only the far right two lanes passable.
At this point, it is unclear just how many vehicles were involved in the accident and what the state of the victims might be.
Georgia Highway Accidents
We wish a speedy recovery to all those involved in this accident.
Accidents that take place on Georgia’s highways tend to be more catastrophic than those that take place on other roads. Vehicles using the highway are traveling longer distances and at much higher rates of speed. Cars on highways are also much more likely to be surrounded by other cars in close proximity. One negligent driver can quickly affect the lives of many different people all at once. If you are involved in an accident on a highway you need to move your vehicle out of the road if possible. The police need to be called and, if needed, medical attention sought. The crash scene needs to be documented with pictures. Then you can collect the information of the other driver’s involved in the crash. The next thing that you should do is to contact a licensed personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
