A Bibb County woman has died after she was involved in a car crash.
Although this fatal car crash involved just one vehicle, and we most often work with clients who have been in two-vehicle accidents, we thought it served as a sad and sobering reminder for all of us of how dangerous driving can be.
The 25-year-old woman was traveling along Hartley Bridge Road early Sunday when she lost control of her vehicle near Arnold Drive. She then crashed her vehicle into a fence. Authorities put the time of the accident around 1 a.m.
The woman was rushed to The Medical Center of Central Georgia after the accident, but it was too late and there was nothing the doctors could do to save her. She was pronounced dead around 3:30 a.m.
The woman leaves behind a 6-year-old son.
As we said, fatal car crashes like this happen far too often, but their frequency does nothing to lessen the blow of each one.
Every time a Bibb County resident dies in a car accident, his or her family members have one of their loved ones unexpectedly torn from them. On top of that, they most likely will find themselves confronted with dizzying medical bills and funeral expenses, to say nothing of a future without that loved one's income.
In the immediate aftermath of a fatal car accident, it can be difficult to think even a day or two ahead. That being said, many families of people who are killed in car accidents choose to see if they have legal redress for what has happened.
