Three separate accidents occurring along a stretch of Klondike Road north of Interstate 20 snared area traffic shortly before 12 p.m. Thursday. A dump truck flipped on its side and spilled its load of gravel while exiting at West Avenue from the east-bound lanes of I-20. That accident was followed by a Conyers city garbage truck striking a Rockdale County Sheriff's Office patrol car that was responding to the dump truck accident. The third accident occurred at Klondike Road and Iris Drive where two vehicles crashed into one another as traffic was being diverted from the dump truck. National EMS reported it transported one person, the gravel truck driver, to Grady Memorial Hospital.
