I-20 tractor-trailer collision kills two

Two people were killed and another person was airlifted with severe injuries following an accident between four semi-trucks and one pickup truck that occurred on Wednesday evening, August 31 on Interstate 20 in Georgia.

The accident started just after 6 p.m. on the eastbound side of the road known by locals as Temple Carrollton Road. The first semi-truck, operated by the severely injured person, hit another semi-truck, which hit the pickup truck before becoming airborne and hitting the third semi-truck; the third truck hit a fourth and final truck.

The two victims killed were the pickup truck’s driver and passenger, as confirmed by the Department of Public Safety officials. Charges have yet to be filed as the investigation was still being conducted by the Georgia State Patrol Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team (SCRT).

The truck accident team at Ausband & Dumont understands all too well the financial and emotional trauma faced by victims of semi-truck accidents because they focus specifically on these cases. Contact an attorney by calling (404) 812-0051 and discuss your legal options today.
