As interstate crashes go, they don’t get much stranger than the one that shut down I-75 in Clayton County for several hours overnight.
The bizarre chain of events began around 10 p.m. Thursday, when a Clayton sheriff’s deputy clocked two northbound motorcycles at 110 mph, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Executive summary: Northbound motorcycle #1 (stolen) hits car, goes over the divider, smashes into windshield of southbound semi. Semi tractor catches on fire. Semi trailer destroys the divider, hits northbound SUV. Motorcycle #1 is now on fire, is hit by southbound taxi, which also catches on fire. Motorcycle #1 driver in critical condition; semi driver taken to hospital.
Motorcycle #2 flees the scene.
Yeah, movie motorcycle chases in real life ARE kind of scary, huh?
