3 injured in Georgia SUV rollover accident

An 18-year-old man was ejected through the passenger window of his truck after Georgia State Patrol said he ran a stop sign and hit an SUV. He landed about 15 feet away from his vehicle. The collision on GA 10 at Stagecoach Road in Thomson also hurt two people in the SUV.

Police investigators said the 18-year-old driver of a Ford F-150 westbound on Stagecoach Road ran the stop sign for GA 10. His vehicle struck a Ford Expedition heading south on the highway. The impact rolled the Expedition over. A female passenger in the Expedition required air transport to GRU Medical Center. Emergency responders drove two injured men to the same hospital.

A hospital representative later shared information on the medical conditions of the injured people. The hospital treated and released the 18-year-old man. The male driver of the Expedition was in fair condition, and the woman was upgraded to good condition.

High medical bills frequently confront a person injured in a car accident. Emergency rescue charges and ongoing treatment could reach into the thousands of dollars while a person might also be unable to work. When accident investigators find that reckless driving caused an accident, an injured person has a right to collect damages from the responsible driver.

An attorney could examine the evidence for an injured person and prepare a personal injury claim if a negligent driver is identified. A personal injury lawsuit typically seeks compensation for medical bills and lost income. An injured person might also gain insights from an attorney about how to estimate the full extent of the financial damages.
