18-year-old driver dies in unexplained accident

Drivers in Macon may have heard of the many warnings that are issued to limit drunk driving and the accidents that happen because of it. However, car wrecks aren't limited to only those who drink and drive, nor can all of them be predicted or prevented.

In a recent case that left one teen dead, no alcohol or drugs were reported to be involved in the accident or suspected to have been taken by the driver. In addition to that, there were no charges filed on any part involved, potentially because the only death that occurred was the death of the driver who instigated the entire crash. It is unknown why the driver crossed the center line.

The 18-year-old driver's car was heading down the highway when it crossed the center line, which resulted in another car's rear driver's side being struck. After that, the 18-year-old's car ended up facing south in the northbound lane and was hit by a third vehicle head-on. Though the 18-year-old was declared dead at the scene, the people in the third car were uninjured and the woman in the second car was only treated for injuries that were not life threatening.

Accidents like this can happen at any time and it can be difficult to determine who might be at fault for what, especially once lawsuits are thrown into the mix. If you have been in an accident and there are injuries involved, you may wish to contact an attorney who can help you through the difficult post-accident period.
