Grand jury indictment in fatal car accident case

Caution on the road is imperative these days, as the potential for an accident is present or at any time of the day or night. That potential for a fatal car accident increases with the number of people who consume alcohol or drugs and then get behind the wheel. A Georgia woman was recently indicted by a grand jury for killing three adults in a fatal car accident.

The 59-year-old woman was transporting four people to their assisted-living facility nearly 10 months ago when she ran off the road in her SUV. The vehicle crossed three lanes, ran off the road and hit the side of a ditch before flipping over. Three of her passengers died at the scene from the impact and she and a fourth passenger were seriously injured. They were air-lifted to a hospital 30 miles away from the accident.

Responding police say they found cocaine in the driver's possession at the scene and the substance was present in her system at the time of the wreck. She was not arrested until four months after the accident but faced numerous counts against her, including homicide by vehicle, serious injury by vehicle and driving under the influence. A report on the incident gave no information on future legal proceedings.

Three families have been mourning the losses of their loved ones from this fatal car accident. Three families have been going through the grief process. Three families have been waiting to find out what will happen to the woman who caused their grief. All of the families have the right to speak to a Georgia attorney about pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit in an effort to hold this woman financially accountable for her negligent actions.
