The pain from losing a loved one because of a driver who is under the influence lasts a lifetime. Having to learn to live without someone because of a drunk driving accident can be difficult in so many ways, including the loss of economic provision and the loss of companionship. Two people were killed in a drunk driving accident, and Georgia police have arrested the man they say caused the fatalities.
Most people are aware of there is a potential chance of being involved in an accident while driving. Those involved in an accident are required to remain at the scene. Unfortunately, law enforcement officials in Georgia say that a driver recently fled the scene of a car accident that injured a pedestrian.
Using drugs and driving simply don't mix. Law enforcement deals with DUI car accidents on a seemingly daily basis. One Georgia police detective may have ignored the lessons he may have learned on the job, as he was recently arrested for DUI following a car accident.
Driving while under the influence is simply not smart. The chances of injuring or killing someone are considerable higher when a driver does not have a clear head while behind the wheel. While the penalties for drunk driving vary depending on the damage done, there are others who are forever separated from a loved one or who may end up with astronomical medical bills from treatment for an injury that should have never happened. Drunk driving is said to be the reason a man was killed in an early morning accident on a Georgia interstate.
There are so many things that can be a distraction to drivers. Paying attention to cellphones, passengers or even one's own thoughts can distract a driver enough to cause an avoidable car accident. Police in a Georgia county are charging a woman for her part in the deaths of two children after they say she caused a fatal car accident.
