According to the GSP, a red SUV carrying four people flipped over and rolled several times at approximately 5:30 a.m. Sunday, resulting in three of the four passengers being thrown from the vehicle.
Due to the swiftness of the accident, oncoming traffic behind the SUV had a hard time avoiding the vehicle, debris and persons ejected during the accident.
One of the bodies thrown from the vehicle during the crash was struck by an oncoming tractor-trailer, while another vehicle struck a car battery.
Neither of the other drivers was injured, and the operator of the tractor-trailer will not face any charges for running over the victim ejected from the SUV.
It is unknown at this time whether the victim died before or after being struck by the tractor-trailer.
The driver of the SUV, a 40-year-old female, was the only passenger of the four not ejected from the vehicle, and was also the only one wearing a seatbelt.
The accident is believed to have been caused by the driver losing control of the vehicle and then overcorrecting, which caused the vehicle to flip and begin a barrel roll down the interstate.
Parts of I-75 were shut down for nearly four hours Sunday, as police and crews worked to clear up the debris from the incident.
The GSP has yet to release the names of the victims, as it is an open investigation and the families are being notified.
Initial reports indicate that three of the people in the SUV were from Dalton, while the other was a resident of Chattanooga, Tenn.
