Police arrest driver after man dies in car accident

In many areas of the country, driving can be very hazardous at any time of the day or night. Some of the major cities in Georgia have at least one car accident with serious injuries or fatalities during the 24 hours of any given day. A late-morning car accident resulted in the death of a 37-year-old driver and the arrest of the man who caused it.

Police reports stated a 25-year-old man was nearing an intersection when the driver in front of him slammed on the brakes. In an effort to keep from crashing into the rear of the car, he said he jerked his steering wheel to the left, which took his vehicle into the lane of oncoming traffic. He then collided with a sedan headed straight toward him.

The driver of the sedan did not survive due to the severity of his injuries. Police arrested the younger man with charges of vehicular homicide as well as failing to maintain his lane. He was arrested and spent time in the county jail but is now out on a bond of an unspecified amount.

The family of the deceased is reaching out to the public for help in paying funeral and burial costs. In similar circumstances, a Georgia attorney might suggest filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the party or parties deemed at fault in pursuit of a monetary judgment for financial losses. Money from a successfully presented lawsuit could help to recover documented financial losses concerning a fatal car accident.
