Around 1 a.m., just outside Gainesville, at least five injuries and three deaths were caused by a five-car accident with an overturned tractor trailer. The wreck was located northbound on Georgia Highway 365 at Howard Road.
Gainesville Police Cpl. Kevin Holbrook informed, “The tractor trailer is entangled with a number of vehicles … We transported at least five patients from that scene.” The patients he is referring to are all in serious to critical condition. He also mentions that firefighters had to clean up oil that spilled from the big rig before they were able to turn it upright. “It is a very large, extensive accident scene,” he said. “We are still trying to determine what caused accident as well as make access.”
All lanes on the roadway that heads to I-985 remain blocked.
