Fiery Crash on I-75 Kills 2 and Injures More

Construction slowdowns forced the driver of a semi-tractor trailer to stop his rig on I-75. Unfortunately, 40 year old Vahid Husic of Lawrenceville was not able to stop his vehicle in time before crashing into a BMW. That BMW smashed forward into a 2011 Town and Country minivan. That vehicle hit several more from there.

The only fortunate thing about this incident which killed 2 people is that it happened just after 2pm instead of during the thick of rush hour traffic.

The driver of the BMW, Gregory Alan Millsaps of Marietta, was killed when the vehicle burst into flames. In the Town and Country, passenger Barbara Phenicie of Peachtree City was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The other two people who were in the Town and Country, husband Dale Phenicie and son Jonathan Phenicie were also taken to the hospital. They are both expected to recover. We wish them both a speedy recovery.

Others who were involved in this fiery chain reaction crash are expected to recover. Everyone else who was checked out at the scene should be okay.

Officials worked diligently to clear the scene, and despite the incident happening at 2pm, it still spanned well into the rush hour traffic.

While fiery crashes don’t happen all the time, they are still a consideration for anyone who is driving on Atlanta’s interstates. When in doubt, slow down so that you can potentially avoid the chain reaction accident reported here.
