Multi-Car Accident on I-75 Results in Fatality

A frightening accident occurred on I-75 on New Year’s Eve morning. A woman lost her life as a result of injuries sustained in the collision.

According to reports from the Marietta Police, a woman was driving northbound on I-75 when she lost control of her vehicle. She ended up spinning around and stopped facing the wrong way. The woman was attempting to move her vehicle when she was struck by a Toyota Corolla.

As a result of the initial crash, the woman’s vehicle was disabled. The woman left her vehicle to stand at the center wall of the highway. Her car was then hit by a Sebring and by an Audi. It was during those two collisions, at some point, that the woman was pinned between a vehicle and the median wall.

Emergency responders rushed the woman to a local hospital for treatment. Sadly, the woman passed away as a result of her injuries. Each driver involved in the incident was taken to local hospitals to be treated for injuries that were not considered to be life threatening.

Police continue to investigate the accident. Officials remind drivers that if they are involved in an accident, it is often safer to stay inside their vehicle if they cannot get far enough off the roadway on foot.
