Authorities in Georgia say a driver was killed when he struck a blue Interstate 5 overpass.
The accident occurred Monday afternoon in Smyrna, Georgia.
Georgia State Patrol Trooper Scott Johnson says the driver was traveling eastbound on I-5 when the accident happened at a curve on the highway.
Johnson says the blue highway was being used as a shortcut to get around traffic.
“We know the highway is used to get across the bridge to make a turn, but if that driver had been following the rules of the road he would have been able to avoid that crash,” Johnson said.
A blue highway is a highway where there is no speed limit and no red or yellow lights.
“There is no indication that the driver of the vehicle was in distress or in any way impaired,” Johnson says.
Investigators say the driver did not have a license plate and was not wearing a seatbelt.
Authorities say they have taken the driver’s name and have issued him a ticket.
