I-75 SB reopens after 10-vehicle crash shut down interstate for several hours

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — All lanes of Interstate 75 southbound are now back open after a crash involving multiple cars and tractor-trailers shut it down for several hours Tuesday.

Triple Team Traffic said that lanes along I-75 SB started reopening around 5:15 p.m. following the crash that involved three tractor-trailers and seven other passenger vehicles.

The Georgia State Patrol told Channel 2 Action News that “it was determined that one of the drivers involved conducted an improper lane change,” causing the crash.

Three people were taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

There is still quite a backup from the wreck. Triple Team Traffic says the best alternate route is Cobb Parkway/Highway 41 to Interstate 285.
