ATLANTA -- The southbound side of Interstate 285 was closed for almost six hours following a fiery wreck Sunday night involving several vehicles. It happened just south of the Campbellton Rd exit.
Atlanta Police Officer John Chafee said a four door sedan left the roadway around 9 p.m. Sunday, struck a guard rail, came back into the travel lanes and was struck by a pickup truck. The car burst into flames and the driver was killed. Chafee said a tractor trailer swerving to avoid the wreckage, left the expressway and came to rest in a ditch.
A passenger in the sedan was transported to a hospital in critical condition. The drivers of the pickup and the tractor trailer are both hospitalized in stable condition.
Chafee said no charges have been filed and the investigation continues.
