On November 29th, an I-75 crash closes both sides of the interstate for hours. The Friday crash happened at about 5:30 a.m. as people were heading to work or traveling during the holiday. Interstate-75’s Southbound lanes were closed through to Hudson Bridge Road, but a large section of I-75 remained closed for hours. Travel between Henry County and Clayton County was nearly impossible during Black Friday.
This single-car crash resulted in one fatality with no other injuries. Henry County Police handled the cleanup and investigation of the crash. Another single-vehicle crash resulting in the closure of an interstate for hours is just a sign that the season of accidents is not coming to an end any time soon. The police responded promptly, but the investigation is still underway. Many have difficulty piecing together the events of a single-car accident as there are often few witnesses, and in this case, no one who can speak for the state or experience of the driver.
These accidents are happening more frequently through the area and often on freeways, interstates, or local highways. These high-speed accidents are often producing fatalities; in recent weeks, the trend seems to be the driver taking the worst of the damage from these single-vehicle accidents.
Keep in mind that through various situations, including poor weather conditions and changing road conditions that safety is always the top priority. Although many adults are comfortable at high-speeds or in poor weather, it doesn’t mean that there’s no chance of an accident. Always slow down and always be on the lookout for potential conditions that could result in a crash, even a single-car crash. A single-vehicle crash at high speeds will often result in a fatality, as this accident did, a bit of caution could have changed the outcome of this crash.
