ATLANTA — A woman said she didn’t think twice before leaping into action when she saw a car crash on I-285.

Kalyn Breeding told Channel 2 Action News that she was driving down I-285 eastbound just before Cascade Road on Saturday afternoon when she saw a car cut in front of another driver.

That woman tried to swerve out of the way to avoid being hit, but in the process, her car flipped over several times before landing in the woods on the side of the interstate.

“I immediately got out of the car to make sure she was ok,” Reeding said.

The gray minivan suffered major damage all over, including a crushed windshield.


Luckily, the woman inside walked away with nothing more than a few scratches, Reeding said.

“I just knew that when I got out of the car, I just thought that it was the worst-case scenario, but I thank God that it wasn’t,” she said.

Channel 2 Action News has reached out to Georgia State Patrol for more details on the crash.
