ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - A crash involving multiple vehicles shut down several lanes of Interstate 20 westbound on Wednesday afternoon at around 4:30 p.m.

The Georgia State Patrol says it all started when troopers spotted a stolen vehicle. They say the driver made a U-turn when the troopers turned on their lights and began driving westbound in the eastbound lanes. The driver’s car then struck two vehicles, causing one to overturn. Six innocent travelers were injured but no serious injuries were reported.

The driver ran away from the scene and has not yet been located.
