Car accident takes life of mother

Whether it is from distraction, impatience or simply recklessness many people do not seem to take the proper precautions while on the road. The ripple effects from causing a devastating car accident can haunt a person for many years. A spokesperson from the Georgia State Patrol states a mother of four children was recently killed in a car accident as a result of someone else's negligence.

The GSP report states the mother, with her children as passengers, was driving her Dodge Caliber southbound followed by a 21-year-old woman driving an SUV. The mother slowed her vehicle in order to make a left turn when the SUV hit the Caliber from behind. The force of the crash pushed the Caliber into the lane of oncoming traffic, where it collided with a sedan headed north.

The mother died at the scene from her injuries and one child was critically injured. The other three children were treated for minor injuries and released. The driver of the sedan was admitted to an area hospital but is expected to fully recover, while the SUV driver had only minor injuries and did not require extensive medical attention. There have been no charges issued as of yet, as the GSP has not completed its investigation.

The general guidelines in the Georgia Drivers Manual specify a two-second distance between cars while driving. Few people actually adhere to that rule but consequences can be harsh when the rules of the road are not obeyed. For those who have been injured or who have lost a family member because someone else's disregard for safety caused a car accident, a skilled attorney will be able to guide a client through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit in pursuit of a civil court judgment for monetary damages incurred.
