Police said it all started when a driver came to a complete stop in the HOV lane on I-85 south.
Police said another crash happened as they were handling the crash because other drivers weren't paying attention and watching the aftermath.
The investigation following the accidents on I-85 south brought traffic to a standstill.
"It was shut down. All 4 lanes were shut down," said driver Sheila Thomas.
Drivers we spoke with said they are devastated by what happened.
"We are human we will look but I think we have to concentrate more on driving fwd so we don’t get into other accidents," Thomas said.
