FOREST PARK, Ga. -- A major pile-up on Interstate 75 backed traffic up for miles on Saturday afternoon.
Officials said that the accident began when a car caught fire near the Forest Pkwy. exit, but it wasn't that car that caused the accident directly.
Initial investigation suggests that when another car attempted to avoid the first it flipped.
From there, the chain-reaction began involving five cars and seriously injuring three.
The extent of the injuries are not yet clear but officials were able to get the accident cleared just shy of 6 p.m.
