DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

It was a tough early morning commute for drivers in metro Atlanta as slick roads caused numerous accidents along I-285, I-20 and GA 400, forcing officials to either fully close or block lanes.

I-20

A crash on WB I-20 near the I-285 interchange completely closed the highway and backed up traffic for miles. GDOT says two people were taken to an area hospital in critical condition in the six-vehicle crash. 

I-285

Another crash on NB I-285 at Henderson Road forced 4 of 5 lanes to close. The crash has been cleared and the roadway is fully open.

Another crash earlier in the morning on I-285 near Clifton Springs Road was blocking all lanes but that crash has also been cleared.

GA 400

Another crash is blocked all but one lane on NB GA 400 near Northridge Road in Fulton County. That crash has been cleared and all lanes are back open.

Two lanes were also closed during a crash near Mansell Road. The crash has been cleared and the roadway is fully reopen.
