Charges expected after death in car accident

Although acts of nature can be blamed for some problems on the road, sometimes drivers help things along. Driving at certain times of the day can be hazardous in itself, and when drivers ignore the present dangers, a car accident is imminent. A woman was killed on a Georgia interstate after an early morning car accident.

A state patrol report states that the driver of a compact vehicle was driving east at approximately 8:00 a.m. He gradually put on the brakes, as the rising sun was in his eyes and he did not have a clear view of the road. A pickup truck was riding behind the sedan and was not able to avoid colliding with it as it slowed.

Both drivers and their passengers were sent to area hospitals with injuries from the crash. One of the back-seat passengers in the sedan died from her injuries not long after her arrival at a nearby medical facility. The report did not list the condition of any of the five remaining individuals. A team is studying the collision via reconstruction, and charges are expected to be issued once the investigation has concluded.

A fatal car accident can bring a loss that completely devastates surviving family members. Many of those who have endured this type of loss in the past have chosen to file a wrongful death lawsuit. A monetary award will not bring back those who have passed, but it can give some closure and financial peace of mind in some cases as they look to the future. An experienced Georgia attorney will be able to assist families wanting to pursue legal action.
