5 people hurt after a two-vehicle collision at I-75/85 connector (Atlanta, GA)

On Saturday afternoon, five people suffered injuries following a traffic collision involving a Highway Emergency Response Operator (HERO) truck at the I-75/85 connector.

As per the initial information, the two-vehicle crash took place at about 3 p.m. in the southbound lanes. The early reports revealed that a 2018 dodge Durango was heading south and changing lanes at a high speed while a HERO truck was assisting a stalled car on the right shoulder. Just then, the driver of the Durango lost control of the vehicle and rear-ended the HERO truck.

The force of the collision pushed the HERO truck forward, colliding with the car it was helping. On the other hand, the Durango truck flipped over three times. The HERO truck had its emergency lights on as well as a message board that warns drivers that it is assisting a vehicle on the road.

All the occupants of the Durango were hurt in the collision. All the victims incurred only minor injuries. The driver was cited for “several different traffic violations,” including violating the move over law. Officials shut down three lanes on the roadway as crews worked at the scene. There was no one in the HERO truck at the time of the accident. No other details are available.

The crash remains under investigation.
