Catherine writes in with this report and photo…
Photo of accident at Superior and N. Decatur, just inside CoD so our police are working it. Cement mixer turns over on top of car. My husband talked to the fire and rescue personnel and they report that the driver of the car was conscious and talking when pulled from the car and the driver of the cement mixer is also alive and OK from what I understand.
Don’t know how it happened. We were out and came home to this.
I will be emailing city next to ask that they take more measures to make this intersection safer. Things are getting worse and worse.
The Decatur Minute is reporting that the road will be closed for several hours.
There has been an accident at N Decatur Rd & Superior Ave and the intersection is expected to be blocked for several hours while emergency personnel respond. Please avoid this area for now. An update will be posted once the intersection is re-opened.
We’re following up with Decatur PD to get the police report. Stay tuned.
