Woman charged with drunk driving after interstate accident

Impaired driving can cause irreparable and lifelong damage. Those who have lost a family member or friend as a result of drunk driving have a hole in their lives that can never quite be filled. A 73-year-old Georgia woman has been charged with drunk driving and other allegations for a recent interstate accident.

According to the state patrol report, the woman stopped her Chevrolet Impala for unknown reasons in the middle of her lane on I-75. A tractor-trailer had been behind her and tried to go around the car but was unable to completely avoid hitting it. The Impala was thrown into a Honda Accord that was parked off the road in the emergency lane, pushing the Honda onto the interstate. The tractor-trailer and the Honda collided, pinning the sedan under the truck.

The truck driver and an 8-year-old male passenger in the Honda escaped injury, but the others in the Honda were not so fortunate. The female passenger in the Honda died at the scene and the male driver was severely injured. The driver of the Impala was injured but is expected to fully recover as she faces several charges, including first-degree homicide by vehicle and driving under the influence.

Too many families have had to say goodbye too soon to a loved one because of the senseless act of drunk driving. They often feel the person responsible should be held accountable and will file a wrongful death lawsuit toward that end. In many ways, that type of justice can help to bring them a measure of comfort. A Georgia attorney can evaluate the case of a potential client and give sound advice on the next steps to take, and help give the family the closure they seek.
