2 die in Macon car accident

Winter can be an unpredictable time of year, even for those living in the south. Within the last few years, snow has become a more common occurrence in Georgia. Even though the snow usually lasts only a few days, it's effect on roadways and traffic can be extreme. It is not uncommon for drivers who are not accustomed to driving in snow and ice on a regular basis to be involved in a car accident.

Recently, snow and ice effectively shut down businesses and schools across Georgia and caused a number of accidents on interstate roadways. One of these accidents occurred on I-75 North. A car containing two individuals slid on a patch of black ice and struck a guardrail. The driver exited the vehicle in what authorities suspect was an effort to survey the damage to the car or view the road conditions. 

The driver of an approaching car attempted to move into another lane. It also slid on the black ice and spun out of control, hitting the first vehicle and its driver. Both the driver of the first vehicle and its remaining occupant were killed in the collision. 

When road conditions are hazardous authorities encourage drivers to avoid going out. However, there are times when driving is unavoidable despite the conditions, and it is during those times that drivers may wish to be especially cautious. Driving in unfamiliar or hazardous conditions can lead to accidents that result in serious injury or death. Those who have been seriously injured in a Georgia car accident or are related to someone killed in such a manner may wish to contact an attorney. Victims of these accidents may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, funeral costs and/or other financial losses.
