Cartersville, GA (November 22, 2022) – One person sustained serious injuries in a car accident that took place on a highway in Cartersville on the morning of Sunday, November 20.
According to Georgia State Patrol officials, the accident happened around 5:05 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-75 around the area of mile marker 297. Police confirmed that a Jaguar F-Type was traveling north on the highway when a second vehicle merged into their lane. The driver of the Jaguar attempted to swerve so that they could avoid the collision but lost control, causing the vehicle to crash against a guardrail and re-enter the roadway. It was then struck by a Ford 500, leading to extensive damages. A Hyundai Sonata then struck the Jaguar.
Several local responders, including paramedics and Cartersville fire crews, were called to the scene to help those in need. One person inside one of the involved vehicles sustained a broken neck and was critically injured. The unidentified party was taken to the hospital by medical helicopter but their current condition is not known. Police have also not confirmed the conditions of the other parties.
The roadway was blocked in several northbound lanes of traffic for some time. Police worked to clear the scene as quickly as possible.
