Fatal Crash Involving Two Vehicles On Ga. 400

accident

On Tuesday morning, June 27, a fatal crash involving two vehicles occurred on Ga. 400 at Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell, Georgia, leading to the deaths of two people. The Georgia Department of Transportation reported that the accident happened around 3:30 a.m. and caused the closure of all northbound lanes for approximately five hours. The specifics of what led to the collision were not provided by the Roswell police at the time. As a result of the accident, traffic was diverted off the highway at the Northridge exit and caused significant congestion, especially in Sandy Springs. Although the lanes reopened at around 8 a.m., traffic delays persisted throughout the northern suburbs. The police stated that additional information would be shared once the investigation, which includes analysis of drone footage, is completed.
