The incident began with a two-vehicle collision on Interstate 285 and ended with a hit-and-run crash that caused injury to three drivers.*
At about 2 a.m. on April 17, the Sandy Springs Police Department says a vehicle crashed into another vehicle on I-285 in Sandy Springs, Georgia. The crash resulted in a vehicle fire, but both drivers were able to exit their vehicles. A passing truck driver stopped and tried to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher, officers said.
As the drivers were standing on the interstate, a Ford Mustang crashed into the site of the accident and struck all three people. The Sandy Springs Police Department says the Mustang driver then kept going on I-285.
WSB-TV says the three people were injured in the hit-and-run collision, and emergency responders transported them to nearby hospitals. None of the victims was identified in the news report, and updated conditions were not provided.
A friend of one of the victims said she was at Grady Memorial Hospital. She is hoping her friend will recover and police will track down the missing driver. Police say the Mustang is blue in color and should have extensive front-end damage.
“I want everybody to use their powers to try and find that blue Mustang,” the friend said. “I don’t think [the Mustang driver] should get away with this at all. It’s not fair. Three innocent people. It’s not fair.”
