Interstate 85 north in Dekalb County was shut down early morning on March 12, 2014 due to a fatal vehicle accident.
According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, the accident involved two tractor trailers on I-285. The wreck caused one of the big rigs to overturn, and scattering broken glass bottles all over the road. This led one of the trailers to split in half.
The driver of the truck that was hit was entombed in his cab and died, according to police. The cab was taken to the Dekalb County Examiner’s Office to remove the body.
The other driver, who caused the accident, was taken to a local hospital, and police have not said whether they will place charges.
All lanes on I-85 and the ramp to I -285 north were shut down, and were estimated to open back up at noon.
Drivers were advised to take the access the ramp to Pleasantdale Road to access I-85 north.
When driving, always make sure to keep a watchful eye out for other vehicles to avoid being involved in an accident. Remember to follow road laws, and always keep your distance to brake safely when needed.
