Charges expected after death in car accident

Although acts of nature can be blamed for some problems on the road, sometimes drivers help things along. Driving at certain times of the day can be hazardous in itself, and when drivers ignore the present dangers, a car accident is imminent. A woman was killed on a Georgia interstate after an early morning car accident.

A state patrol report states that the driver of a compact vehicle was driving east at approximately 8:00 a.m. He gradually put on the brakes, as the rising sun was in his eyes and he did not have a clear view of the road. A pickup truck was riding behind the sedan and was not able to avoid colliding with it as it slowed.

Woman faces charges in car accident

In cities all over the country, there are multiple vehicular crashes every day. The resulting damage from a car accident can range from light scratches on the cars involved to death of a driver, passenger or pedestrian. A 29-year-old Georgia woman has been arrested after causing a car accident with injuries.

Two friends were in the Ford SUV with the woman when she crashed into a Honda minivan. She chose to flee the scene of the early evening accident, even though a 38-year-old male in the minivan was injured. He was taken to a local hospital, where she remains in stable condition. A report on the accident states there were no other injuries.

Woman loses life in car accident

Unfortunately, there are too many people who know the pain of a loss from an accident caused by negligence. When a family member dies in a car accident, there is often no time for the family to voice their goodbyes, have one last hug or to say I love you one more time. The family of a Georgia woman is mourning after her death in a recent afternoon car accident.

The 36-year-old woman was sideswiped by a vehicle as she was driving around her home town. Her vehicle ran off the road, rolled over a number of times and landed in a ditch. She was thrown from her car and died as a result. She had two passengers, another adult and a child who were injured, but are both expected to fully recover.

Car wrecks are almost unavoidable on Georgia roadways

In life, it's not a question of if accidents are going to happen, but when. Although certain precautions can be taken to reduce the odds of an accident occurring, many accidents are completely unpredictable. As populations continue to rise across the state of Georgia, roadways are often crowded and congested, especially in metropolitan areas. Due to the sheer number of vehicles sharing roadways, car wrecks are almost unavoidable.

A recent accident in Cobb County claimed the life of one driver and injured another. The crash happened during the afternoon hours along Powder Springs Road. According to reports, a blue sedan was traveling westbound when a black sedan pulled out of a parking lot and into the path of the blue sedan.

Hit-and-run car accident leaves Georgia man injured

Driving on any Georgia road can be dangerous if other drivers are not cautious and alert. However, if a car accident should occur, one might expect the other driver to stop and render aid or at least check on the condition of anyone in the other vehicle. A recent collision in Georgia demonstrates that accident victims cannot always rely on this.

Sometime before 4 a.m. on a recent Sunday, a man driving north in the right lane on Highway 316 noticed another vehicle approaching from behind. It was still dark, and the other vehicle's headlights shone in the driver's rear-view mirror. He expected the other vehicle to pass and was shocked when it allegedly struck his own vehicle, sending it spinning off the road. The man reported that he felt his vehicle flipping numerous times before he lost consciousness.

Family explains struggle following truck accident

Hard-working Georgia families do their best to get by, and sometimes an emergency situation can put an enormous burden on finances, schedules and relationships within the family unit. One family recently shared their story about how a truck accident turned their lives upside-down. Now uncertain about the future and struggling to keep afloat, the family's plight illustrates how one accident can affect multiple lives. 

The ordeal began when a Georgia man, husband and father of two, locked up the store where he was employed and began to walk home one evening in June 2019. Still unable to recall exactly what transpired next, the man relies on the word of Georgia State Patrol officers that tell him he was struck by a truck along a local road. His wife was notified and she rushed to the hospital, where she found her bruised and broken husband lying helpless. 

Head-on car accident claims one life

A woman is dead following a head-on crash late on Aug. 13, according to the Department of Transportation. The Georgia State Patrol investigated the car accident that claimed the life of a 36-year-old woman. Two other people were taken to the hospital with injuries described as non life-threatening. Given the details of the case it appears charges will not be filed against the injured driver, but the investigation is still underway as of this report. 

According to the accident report, the woman was headed southbound on Georgia 247 when, for reasons unknown, her vehicle crossed the center line into oncoming traffic. This caused her vehicle to strike a northbound vehicle head-on, with enough force to kill her. She was pronounced dead at the scene by arriving medical authorities. 

Arrest made following fatal accident in Georgia

Most drivers in Georgia go to great lengths to ensure that they are following all traffic laws to protect both their personal safety as well as the safety of others they may encounter. Unfortunately, it may be impossible for even the safest of drivers to avoid the negligent acts of others. For example, a fatal accident involving a tire on a tractor-trailer recently resulted in a woman's death.

The incident happened on a day in mid-August. According to reports, a 31-year-old man from out of state was driving a tractor-trailer in the northbound lanes of Interstate 75. Two wheels on the tractor-trailer apparently came off one of the axles of the truck.

1 dead in Georgia car accident

One person has died following a crash in Perry, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. The car accident occurred on Georgia 247 late on the evening of Aug. 13 and involved two vehicles. Two other people were taken to local hospitals with injuries, and the accident is still under investigation by authorities as of this report. 

According to the preliminary report, it appears a 36-year-old woman was traveling southbound on Ga. 247 when the accident occurred. For reasons that have yet to be determined, the woman's vehicle crossed the center line into oncoming traffic before striking a northbound vehicle head-on. The Georgia State Patrol confirmed she was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Wrongful death: Georgia man faces criminal charges re train crash

Drivers in Georgia likely come across a variety of different flashing lights, warning signs and other precautions to protect their safety. Unfortunately, some people may choose to ignore these signs or fail to see them, potentially placing their own lives at risk as well as the lives of their passengers or others in the area. In fact, a recent fatal accident in Georgia -- which could ultimately result in a wrongful death lawsuit -- appears to illustrate the potential dangers of failing to obey flashing lights.

The incident happened just before 7 a.m. on a day in early August. According to reports, a 45-year-old man drove a van onto train tracks. The man allegedly ignored several warnings that a train was coming. Reports indicate that the intersection was equipped with several safety tools, including crossbucks, lights, gates and bells.
