Byron, GA (May 3, 2023) – Around 2 a.m. on Wednesday morning, May 3, two people sustained critical injuries in a truck accident in Byron.
According to Georgia State Patrol officials, the accident happened in the southbound lanes of I-75 around the area of the Watson Boulevard exit. Police confirmed that a driver was in a Hyundai Santa Cruz when the driver slammed into the back of a tractor-trailer due to reasons that are not entirely known. The Hyundai was then pinned underneath the back of the truck, which trapped the two individuals inside it.
Several responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help. Rescue crews took approximately two hours to free the two passengers inside the Hyundai from their vehicle. The parties were taken to Atrium Health Navicent for treatment of critical injuries. Their current conditions are not yet known.
Two out of three lanes of traffic were blocked for some time after the collision. Police had the scene fully cleared by 6:38 a.m.
No further details have been released but the investigation into the accident continues.
We want to offer our warmest sympathies to the parties who have sustained injuries in this collision.
Truck Accidents in Georgia
Tractor-trailers are some of the largest vehicles on our roads in the state of Georgia and beyond. Hundreds of thousands of serious truck accidents take place throughout the U.S. every year. In just one year’s time in the U.S., it was reported that approximately 119,000 people were seriously injured in large truck accidents and many even lost their lives. Though truck drivers are thought to be some of the safest drivers on our roads due to the many laws that they have to abide by, these accidents still happen all the time. If you have been hurt in a truck accident and know that another party is to blame, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust.
Having your life turned upside-down by a truck accident can be a scary thing to experience, especially if this is the first time that it has happened to you. Truck accidents tend to involve several parties, which makes them even more complex than other accident claims. There are several parties that could be at fault for a truck accident. These include some of the following:
- Truck drivers
- Trucking companies
- Manufacturers of truck parts
- Cargo loaders
