Multiple people injured in series of crashes on I-75 in Bartow County, Life Flight responds

Multiple lanes on I-75 were shut down due to a series of crashes on the interstate Saturday night. It happened in Bartow County between mile markers 283 and 288.

The Bartow County Sheriff's Office, Life Flight and other first responders rushed to the site of the crashes where there were multiple victims.

The Georgia State Patrol (GSP) investigated one of the crashes in which a white 2023 Kenworth CMV car hauler was hit by a black 2015 Audi A6.

The impact caused the driver of the Audi to lose control and hit the guardrail. The front passenger was ejected. The GSP believes the driver was under the influence, but did not specify a substance.

According to the GSP, both the driver and passenger suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Two lanes near this particular crash were closed for about an hour.

The Emerson Police Department investigated another crash nearby on I-75 that had all lanes closed. The GSP was not asked to investigate this crash.

Motorists were encouraged to use Allatoona Dam Road/Red Top Mountain exits in Emerson and Main Street in Cartersville as alternate routes.

FOX 5 Atlanta is working on learning more information about each of the crashes. It's not clear exactly how many people were involved in total.
