A woman is dead following a head-on crash late on Aug. 13, according to the Department of Transportation. The Georgia State Patrol investigated the car accident that claimed the life of a 36-year-old woman. Two other people were taken to the hospital with injuries described as non life-threatening. Given the details of the case it appears charges will not be filed against the injured driver, but the investigation is still underway as of this report.
One person has died following a crash in Perry, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Though a driver of any age can be involved in a car crash, some drivers may have more risk factors than others. A recent study claims that, here in Georgia, senior citizens have a higher risk of being in car wrecks than in most of the rest of the nation, ranking fifth on the list. There are several reasons as to why this may be the case.
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.
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.
Everyone seems to be in a hurry, especially when driving from one point to another. Being in a hurry and not obeying the rules of the road often causes a car accident with injuries or fatalities. A college student has been sentenced after a 64-year-old Georgia woman was killed in a car accident.
Collisions between vehicles happen for any number of reasons. Distractions by cell phones or passengers, along with the weather and the inattentiveness of other drivers can all result in a car accident that causes serious injury or death. Police in a middle Georgia town have charged a 21-year-old man with vehicular homicide after his negligent actions caused a car accident.
Whether it is from distraction, impatience or simply recklessness many people do not seem to take the proper precautions while on the road. The ripple effects from causing a devastating car accident can haunt a person for many years. A spokesperson from the Georgia State Patrol states a mother of four children was recently killed in a car accident as a result of someone else's negligence.
Police in Georgia are still on the lookout for the driver and passenger of a vehicle that nearly killed a little girl on the afternoon of March 29. The car accident took place in Lithonia and is being treated as a hit-and-run accident by police. As of April 1, police in Dekalb County said they were expecting to arrest a suspect shortly.
