CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. - A crash involving seven cars shut down Interstate 75 southbound in Clayton County for six hours.
Detectives told Channel 2's Tom Jones that six of the seven drivers were driving under the influence. Five were charged with DUI, and the pedestrian was charged with pedestrian in the road way. A sixth driver is expected to be charged after being released from the hospital.
“You’re already under the influence of alcohol. You’re driving. You see something, some type of accident in front you. You’re going to swerve and that would cause other cars to do the same,” a Clayton County police officer told Jones.
The Georgia Department of Transportation said two people have been hospitalized, including one person who is in critical condition.
