The 33-year-old faces two misdemeanor vehicular homicide charges, police said.

The chain reaction of crashes began when traffic was slowing from another crash ahead. 

Georgia State Patrol Trooper Sgt. Auston Allen said the chaotic scene left debris scattered along the freeway. He said crash scene photos were too graphic to share.  

“It literally looked like a bomb had exploded,” Allen said.
