Car accident claims 1 life, another victim injured

When a driver ignores traffic laws, bad things can happen. The laws were put in place for the safety of all who are on the road, whether driver, passenger or pedestrian. Breaking the law may lead to a car accident that could seriously injure or kill someone. A driver choosing to ignore a stop sign caused a car accident in which a Georgia resident was killed.

A spokesperson for the Georgia State Patrol reported that a 19-year-old drove his Jeep through the stop sign for a side road intersecting with a state highway. She hit the passenger side of a pickup truck driven by a 31-year-old resident of a nearby town. The pickup driver was taking a friend home from work. The friend was a former contestant on a once-popular reality dance show, "So You Think You Can Dance." Both men were rushed to an area hospital, where the friend died.

The driver of the Jeep was not hurt but may be facing criminal charges. There has been no updated information on the status of the truck driver. A reconstruction team has yet to conclude its investigation, but police are standing by to make a possible arrest based on the findings.

An unexpected death or injury from a car accident brings not only sorrow and grief but unexpected expenses, as well. Whether faced with paying medical bills or funeral costs, or both, it can take a toll on the mental and physical well-being of those family members left with that task. An award from a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit can help alleviate that financial burden. A Georgia personal injury attorney will work on behalf of the client to get the best results possible.
