Charges issued to young man after car accident

Collisions between vehicles happen for any number of reasons. Distractions by cell phones or passengers, along with the weather and the inattentiveness of other drivers can all result in a car accident that causes serious injury or death. Police in a middle Georgia town have charged a 21-year-old man with vehicular homicide after his negligent actions caused a car accident.

According to police reports, an 85-year-old woman was turning out of the parking lot of a pharmacy and on to one of the town's major roadways. The young man's car hit the woman's car, and she died two days later from the injuries she sustained in the collision. The report did not state whether or not the man was injured.

The man is active-duty military, stationed at a nearby Air Force base. In addition to the homicide charge, police also cited him for not wearing his seat belt and for reckless driving. These charges came after police say they spent a lot of time and energy focusing on their investigation.

The loss of life in a car accident can be emotionally draining for the ones left behind. Not only do they have to deal with an unexpected death, but they have to deal with medical bills as well as the costs of the funeral and burial. The often-excessive bills can leave a family overwhelmed, not knowing which way to turn. A Georgia lawyer can help a family possibly dig out from under the financial strain by filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Any award granted can help give family members peace of mind while adjusting to a different life.
