Tractor trailer crash shuts down top-end I-285
Once again a tractor trailer crash has shut down a section of Atlanta’a I-285 perimeter expressway, snarling rush hour traffic. At about 5 AM today, a tractor trailer crashed into the median barrier below the Ashford Dunwoody Road overpass. Injuries were reported, but no details about the cause of the crash or extent of injuries were in the early news reports. According to reports, the truck was carrying windshields, which were scattered all over the expressway.

I don’t want to prejudge the cause of this crash, but we see an awful lot of incidents in which truckers drive all night, are weary when they hit Atlanta as morning rush hour is beginning, and bad stuff happens.
