Atlanta Freeway Has Just Collapsed

Disturbing images are now coming out of Atlanta, Georgia. I-85 has collapsed due to a fire which was reportedly burning below.

Details are emerging now.

The bridge on I-85 northbound just south of Ga. 400 near Piedmont Road collapsed about 7 p.m., Atlanta fire spokesman Sgt. Cortez Stafford said.

No injuries to motorists or first responders were reported.

“We do have the fire under control,” Stafford said.


Capt. Mark Perry of the Georgia State Patrol said terrorism is not suspected, but they don’t know what started the fire. At first they thought it was a car burning, but later said it could have been something else, Perry said.

Troopers based in Atlanta were working about 7:45 p.m. to get cars on the interstate turned around.

Michael Brooks, 43, was heading home on I-85 when he saw the smoke.

“I thought it was a terrible wreck. Vehicles stopped suddenly,” said Brooks, who works at CNN.
