Six injured in drunk driving accident

For many people throughout the country, the weekend is a time to let loose and relax. Others, however, may have a tendency to over-indulge with alcohol during the weekends, which may have dangerous results if they then choose to drive. Georgia authorities responded to reports of a drunk driving accident involving two cars, and, surprisingly, a house. 

Sometime after midnight on July 7, an SUV ran a stop sign and collided with another vehicle carrying five passengers. The SUV then ran over a telephone pole and proceeded to drive through several people's front yards. After leaving the scene of the first crash, the inebriated driver also crashed into a second vehicle and a house before coming to a stop. 

After arresting the individual, Georgia State Patrol officers revealed that the driver's initial blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit. A total of six people were sent to the hospital with injuries, including the five passengers involved in the first crash as well as the drunk driver. Georgia State Patrol was able to clear the scene in only a few hours, and authorities continue to investigate the accident. 

Drunk driving accidents have the potential to cause many serious injuries and significant property damage because the inebriated driver may be unaware that he or she has done something wrong or needs to stop. Georgia residents who have been injured in a drunk driving accident could benefit from speaking with a local attorney. These victims may be entitled to compensation for medical treatment costs or property damages.
