I am hearing rumors that someone was killed in this multi car accident, and that the one killed was a friend of the family. If anyone has any info or a link that talks about this, please post it here. I can not verify anything with any online search that I am presently doing.

Thanks. My Daughter is saying it is a friend of hers who was killed in that wreck, and as of right now there are no news articles that I can find online. I am also going to check around on facebook to see if I can verify this. I have the guys name, but out of respect if this is true-I don't want to post it here.

We passed the accident heading towards Atlanta today. There was a gold colored SUV that obviously had rolled a couple of times as well as a white trailer that had Honda on it that was smashed. I believe it was between the Lee Road and Fairburn Road exits... my condolences goes out to the victim's family and friends.

I sent some messages, but couldn't verify any names, etc. Only that there had been a wreck.

I have only been able to verify a wreck occurred. No names as of yet.

Well the name has been posted now. So sad. He was a newlywed too, and his wife is a sweetheart. Prayers out to the entire Ward and Johnson families right now.

My husband passed the scene on I-20 as well. Gold toyota 4X4 ext. cab I believe lifted up. I believe he was on his way out of town for a few days too. So,so,so,so sad. It's even sadder when it hits so close to home, and you have an adult child in tears.

It is horrible. Although I did not know him personally, my Daughter does. She is all upset over this. I'd really like to find out if we could start up some sort of fund for his wife that he left behind. They are a young married couple, and I am not even sure if he had any life ins. at all. I believe she is in college, and is working the same job that she has had since High school. Maybe I should give her employer a call tomorrow to see if they plan on doing anything. Maybe we could all ban together and do some sort of a joint fund raiser type thing to help her out.
I just sit here trying to imagine what she is feeling right now, and the pit that I get at the bottom of my stomach makes me nauseated thinking about it. My prayers go out to the entire Ward family,and to the Johnson family right now. They were High school sweethearts. It's just so sad.

GAWIZ I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your niece. Although it has been 3 yrs., I know the pain still has to cut deep to the core.:(

This is such bad news.

I was coming home from Atlanta yesterday and must have seen it only a few minutes after it happened.

My prayers go out to the family.

When I passed through the area I saw a 14-16 foot trailer resting upside down. It looked like the pickup truck towing it had done a rollover as well. The cab was crushed.

There was a person laying on the road with several first responders attending to him. The ambulance did not arrive yet.

I took a few cell phone pictures and was going to post them here as a general interest story. Given the outcome I don't think I will be posting the Pics now.

A family member saw the wreck and he said it was pretty gruesome.

I pray for Ward's family and the others involved in the wreck. I know they saw something that will haunt them a long time.

Does anyone know what caused the wreck and if anyone else in the wreck is in the hospital? I am praying for all the families involved. It is never good no matter how it happened and all need prayer.
