Sandy Springs Georgia Trucking Accidents

Texas trucker arrested for death of woman on I-285 in Sandy Springs

At the intersection of I-285 and Georgia 400, Sandy Springs is at one of the most heavily traveled choke points in metro Atlanta traffic. Most interstate big rig, semi truck and tractor trailer traffic that comes down I-85 from the northeast and up I-75 toward Tennessee, or vice versa, must pass through Sandy Springs. Much of the truck traffic between the northeast and west, using I-85 and I-20, is also routed through Sandy Springs on I-285. There tired truckers are often mixed with heavy local commuter traffic, with fairly predictable accidents that lead to personal injury and wrongful death.

Sandy Springs is one of the largest and most affluent suburbs of Atlanta. When incorporated in 2005, it became the eighth largest city in Georgia.
