A distracted driver causes a chain-reaction crash on I-75 Saturday.

It happened around mile marker 348.

Sgt. Chris Harris with the Georgia State Patrol says a man was driving down I-75 when he got distracted and pulled into the lane of a motorhome.

Once he hit that, he then tried to get into the outside lane but instead, rear-ended a truck.

That truck rear-ended another car, causing a chain- reaction crash involving two others.

GSP says the driver is charged with driving without a valid license, failure to use due care, following too closely, failure to maintain lane and too fast for conditions.

GSP says several were hurt but are expected to be okay.
