Authorities have reopened all but one exit lane on Ga. 400 North following a serious injury crash and fuel leak Thursday morning, police said.
GA 400 North travel lanes are open at this time. The ramp to Abernathy Road remains closed for clean up.— Sandy Springs Police (@SandySprings_PD) August 23, 2018
Sandy Springs police and fire are still working to clear the accident at the Abernathy Road exit. The off-ramp is blocked for traffic exiting the freeway east toward Dunwoody, police spokesman Sgt. Sam Worsham told AJC.com.
“That’s where those lanes ramp from I-285 onto (Ga.) 400 North,” WSB 24-hour Traffic Center reporter Mark Arum said. “Big outbound delays on 400 up through Sandy Springs.”
A pickup truck was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer, Worsham said. A driver was pulled from the crumpled wreckage and taken to a hospital.
Fuel was leaking from the tractor-trailer onto the roadway, which delayed the crash cleanup, he said.
The crash has “single-handedly affected three interstates pretty severely,” traffic reporter Ashley Frasca said. Both directions on Ga. 400, I-85 and the entire Top End Perimeter are jammed.

This has single-handedly affected THREE interstates pretty severely this morning- Ga-400, I-85 and of course I-285 in both directions! #ATLtraffic pic.twitter.com/I1ZmbzdZsL— Ashley Frasca (@AshleyFrascaWSB) August 23, 2018
Drivers can take Roswell Road to avoid the mess, the Traffic Center reported.
