Seven people were injured in a five-vehicle accident Sunday night on I-85 in Coweta County, according to authorities.
The accident occurred around mile marker 54 on I-85 southbound, said Captain Craig Sherrer with the Coweta County Fire Department. Sherrer said crews responded to find one patient heavily entrapped in a vehicle with severe injuries, and after about 10 minutes, emergency responders were able to extricate the patient.
The extricated patient was transported to the Atlanta Medical Center by helicopter, Sherrer said, and all other patients were transported by ambulance to either the Atlanta Medical Center or Grady Memorial Hospital.
