27 vehicles and several people injured in accident in Georgia

By Camille Requiestas,

On Wednesday morning, more than two dozen vehicles were involved in an accident on the Georgia interstate, killing at least three people and injuring several others.

Terry Cobb, the Laurens County EMS director stated at least six cars were on fire when she arrived at the scene according to The Associated Press.

She also states the area was foggy but that this may not be the direct cause for the accidents. They are still trying to determine the cause.

The accident occurred at 8:10 a.m. on Interstate 16 in central Georgia involving a total of 27 vehicles and four separate accidents, claims the Georgia State Patrol.

Emergency responders reportedly worked on extinguishing a fire which erupted in an empty petroleum tanker truck.

Martha Strickland, a passerby of the accident, says of the crash, "The tank itself was not burning from the back. It was still silver — you could see that."

Cobb states 12 people being taken to nearby hospitals in the town of Dublin, although most appeared to be minor injuries according to the Today News Gazette.
