Last Friday, September 25 at around 11:40 a.m., two tractor trailers crashed on I-285 in Atlanta, Georgia. The trucks both fell from the bridge and ended up on Georgia State Route 400. No life-threatening injuries were reported, but the crash did shut down both of the highways. The incident caused massive traffic jams on already busy highways.
The Sandy Springs police are still investigating what caused both trucks to drive off the bridge. The Publix truck was upside down in the middle of the highway, while the other one, a tanker truck, ended up sideways in the middle of Ga. 400.
After Friday’s rush hour, the Publix truck was first removed. The tanker truck was not removed until Saturday afternoon, September 26.
Sergeant Ron Momon of Sandy Springs Police Department refused to comment on what caused the accident, stating that all information would be released when the investigation is done.
