Woman dies as a result of alleged drunk driving

Even after many years of media campaigns warning people not to drink and then drive, story after story in the news media tell the public of vehicular accidents involving intoxication. Alcohol can impair the senses enough that a drunk driving accident can kill or permanently injure anyone involved. A Georgia woman is facing charges after an alleged drunk driving accident.

The Georgia State Patrol states that several troopers were called to the scene of an accident that left one person dead and two others injured. Through their investigation they learned a woman driving a large SUV veered from her lane into that of oncoming traffic, where she collided head-on with a sedan. The sedan was then hit from behind by a pickup truck.

The driver of the sedan died and the two people in the truck were injured, although not seriously. The troopers arrested the driver of the SUV, who was not injured, and charged her with homicide by vehicle and DUI-related offenses. At the time of the report on the incident she was still in jail, with her bond having been set at just over $10,000.

Because this woman apparently chose to drink and then drive, one family is mourning the loss of someone dear to them. In their grief and devastation, the family may not realize an option they have that may ensure this woman is held accountable for her actions. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit against her is a step other families in this same drunk driving situation have taken. An attorney in Georgia can provide detailed information on how to seek financial relief in these circumstances.
