Driver cited in crash that shut down Ga. 400


SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Sandy Springs Police say video evidence proves the man behind the wheel of a Kia is responsible for the crash that pushed two tractor trailers over an overpass onto Ga. 400 last Friday.  

The Publix tractor veered to the right after impact and hit a fuel tanker. Both the tractor trailer and fuel tanker went over the concrete barrier on I-285 and landed on Ga. 400. The tractor landed upside down on Ga. 400 after striking a Honda Civic. The Fuel tanker came to rest against a guard rail. Three people were injured in the crash. Amazingly, no one was killed. 








A nearby traffic camera and a witness dash cam both captured the moments leading up to the crash. Several witnesses also confirmed the story with police, including one 911 caller heard saying "Hell no! Oh, he's gone!". 

For hours, passengers on GA 400 northbound were being diverted to I-285 eastbound. Traffic was backed up for miles, and a busy Friday afternoon of event traffic slowed to a crawl.
