Authorities are still on the scene of a fiery eight-car pile-up in Irwin County. We know at least three people were killed.
One person was airlifted to a hospital, and at least one other was taken to Tift Regional hospital.
It was hard to decipher exactly what happened, since there were so many vehicles involved in the crash, and so many emergency workers and DOT officials on scene as well.
It happened on Highway 32 near the Alapaha River Bridge around 2:00 Monday afternoon. At least four of the eight vehicles caught fire in the crash-- two cars, a pick up truck, and part of a flat bed six-wheel truck.
There was also a flat bed tractor trailer involved in the eight-vehicle mangled mess.
Troopers were awaiting the arrival of the Specialized Crash Reconstruction Team to help put together pieces of the puzzle.
"There was a construction zone," said Trooper Rusty Harrelson. Traffic was stopped for some paving along Georgia highway 32, that's all we know at this time. All we know is one vehicle began the process and it was a chain reaction."
Troopers say at this point it appears the tractor trailer started the chain reaction, but we still do not know any names involved.
Troopers say they plan to be out on scene most of the evening investigating the crash.
The State Patrol has not released the names of those victims yet, but we'll continue to check with them for updates.
