6 taken to hospital after 10-car wreck on NW Atlanta parkway

A Monday evening crash on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway in northwest Atlanta involved 10 cars and sent six people to the hospital, officials said.

The wreck took place just before 6 p.m. on the busy road near the West Lake Food Mart, Atlanta Fire Rescue spokeswoman Alyssa Richardson told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The road was cleared and reopened to traffic about an hour later.

Officials do not know the conditions of the six people taken to the hospital, Richardson said. Five others at the scene refused treatment.

According to an Atlanta police spokesman, the crash was started by a single driver who hit multiple other vehicles, including three that were parked.

No further information has been released about what led to the crash or whether charges would be filed against any of the drivers. Police are continuing to investigate, the spokesman said.
