The wreck occurred on January 27, though reports did not indicate exactly what time. Sometime in the early morning on January 27, multiple vehicles somehow collided on I-20 West. It is not clear how many vehicles were ultimately involved, but reports said at least three vehicles crashed into each other. The accident happened near Fulton Boulevard.

Authorities did not say how the wreck happened, and they did not provide any details about the nature or circumstances of the collision. Several lanes of I-20 West were closed after the accident so that crews could access the scene, investigate, and clear the wreckage. 

Reports say that the Georgia Department of Transportation kept the westbound lanes closed on the interstate for several hours. It is not clear what time they reopened. Traffic became delayed on the interstate and in the Atlanta area during this time.
