Man's life lost in drunk driving accident

The public often hears about a driver who had been drinking and caused an accident. However, a Georgia news outlet recently released a story about a drunk driving accident that involved two drivers who had been drinking. The drunk driving accident resulted in the death of a 62-year-old man.

The report stated a 28 year-old-woman was driving after drinking and neglected to stop at a stop sign. She hit a car that was proceeding through the intersection. The force of the collision caused both cars to overturn and killed the passenger in the second car.

Both drivers and the passenger in the first car were taken to a nearby hospital, treated for minor injuries and released. Police discovered not only had the driver of the first car been drinking but the driver of the second car had, as well. The woman was charged with DUI, running a stop sign and homicide by vehicle, while the other driver faces driving without a license and DUI-related charges.

Many people who drive after they have been drinking either believe they will be fine to drive, especially if it is not a long distance, or they simply do not care if they hurt themselves or anyone else. Too many lives have been tragically lost too soon from this type of selfish thinking. Family members of those who have been killed in a drunk driving accident are forced to make a number of decisions they may not be prepared to make, one of those possibly being the pursuit of financial compensation. A Georgia attorney will work relentlessly to make sure these families are well-represented in a court of law.
